Summer Solstice QAL {Finished Top}

It's the end of the road for the Summer Solstice QAL, which means it is time to link up all of the finished tops over at Happy Quilting! 

I didn't cut my sashing strips at the beginning because I was a little tight on my background fabric, so I figured out how big I could make my strips with the fabric I had left, and I ended up with 1.5 inch unfinished strips as my sashing.

Here's my finished top!


(Don't mind my lemon print kitchen rugs! My kitchen has the best lighting after dark!)

My quilt top measures 51 inches square, which is a perfect baby quilt size, I think. I do have another black print from this line that is a smaller scale leaf print that I could use for a border (plus pieces of my other black and white fabrics!) but I don't think I am going to do borders with this one and keep it as is.

I am planning to quilt this one myself (at some point!) and it will likely have lots of curls and swirls.

  1. The 1.5 inch border looks great, and at 51 inches square, that is definitely a great baby size quilt. :)

  2. I love the super skinny sashing and it is indeed the perfect size baby quilt ;) Your quilt top is just stunning and I am so glad that you have been quilting along with me. It has just been wonderful to watch this come together.

  5. Your quilt is great. It looks like a bowl of lemony raspberry sherbet. Yummy!

  6. This is so pretty! I think curls and swirls would look fabulous. I'm still trying to decide the quilting on mine, but it will have to be freehand to make the quilting quick.

  7. So bright and lovely! I like the secondary pattern I can see in the centre with the narrower sashing.
