Far Far Away Quilt

At this time last year, I had just finished the quilt below and blogged about it on my old blog.  Here is the content for those of you who missed it:

Erin had bought some fat quarters from Heather Ross' Far Far Away II fabric line as well as some off-white flannel and told me to go crazy and be creative. The quilt was meant to be snuggled with but also fit a twin bed. After much deliberation, visualizing and literally dreaming of designs in my sleep, this is what I came up with:



For the back I used the off-white flannel given to me by Erin and mixed it with the same floral I used for the binding and a green Rapunzel.




I decided to fussy cut all of the images in the fat quarters and use a variety of fabrics for scrappy log cabin framing. To highlight the whole quilt, I used Kona white as a border for the outside and the vertical row of pink and green Rapunzels off-centred on the left.





I used a double layer of cotton-bamboo batting and quilted along the frames to give it extra focus. Wash and dry and this quilt was ready for the Birthday girl!
