Wonderland quilt finished and a little gift

The Wonderland quilt I started a while back is now finished and being fully utilised in my lounge room.

I chose Kona Cotton in "Delft" for the binding and backing.  The binding against the brightness of the Wonderland fabric gives it a lovely muted look, picking up on the little bits of blue throughout the quilt.  I didn't do a lot of quilting on it but I thoroughly enjoyed making the binding this time and I think my corners are vastly improved.  I used 10cm wide fabric to make the binding this time and am much more pleased with the plush look the wider binding gives.


Overall it was a much more pleasant experience than the first attempt I had at quilting and binding and I can definately see that my skills have improved.

I also made this cute fabric into a little girl's tablecloth and 4 napkins.  Miss Ellie's 5th birthday is tomorrow and she loves to bake in her little kitchen as well as in Mummy's big one.
