Far Far Away Sandcastle Quilt Finish
I have said this before and I will say it again, it takes dedication to a fabric designer when you decide you love their fabric enough that you will use a double gauze to piece a quilt top with! I do love these Far Far Away prints by Heather Ross! I probably should have chosen a simpler design to use with the double gauze fabrics, but I really thought this would be a pattern to let the fabrics shine. I'm glad I struggled through with it, but I can tell you right now that I would not do it again. No more making quilts with double gauze!
For the quilting design I used an Anne Bright pattern called Fairy Tale, which shows up subtly on the front, but does show up well on the back. I didn't post a photo, but for the back I used Kona Pomegranate (same as binding color). If you like this pattern, check out Bec's site Chasing Cottons to find out how you can get a copy.
