Shattered Stained Navy


It's been a while coming but this evening I got myself in gear and determinedly finished hand sewing the binding on. Then I rushed my (rather tall) nephew outside to take some pictures of it!

Here is the Shattered Stained Navy - the pattern is from the fabulous Stained QAL by the talented Sarah of Narcoleptic in a Cupboard


Size: 57 x 69 (loving those odd numbers!!)

Fabric:
Panels - Joel Dewberry - from the Heirloom and Modern Meadow collections, Tula Pink - Hexbox, Amy Butler - Lark - Souvenir in Lemon, Dear Stella - from the Palladium collection, Lizzy House - Jewels and some others that I can't remember!
Borders - Kona Charcoal
I added larger borders in Kona Charcoal and the luscious Herringbone in Lake by Joel Dewberry


Backing:
Vintage sheet, black and white floral

Quilting:

I used the Leah Day pattern Broken Glass in some of the panels, straight line quilted around a few others and then straight line quilted around the Herringbone border.

At the suggestion of the super-duper M-R I also used the fmq design just around the edges of some panels so it really gives that comic book broken glass effect - LOVE! - thanks M-R :)


Overall this was a great pattern to do, it's so fun to see the blocks come together and is easily made from fat quarters. There's so many great variations of this quilt on the Flickr group!


Huge thanks to Sarah for providing such a well thought out and cool pattern :)

The S.S. Navy is bound for a dear friend and I'm hoping he'll like it... my husband said 'how can he not love it?', so that's one male thumbs up!

Linking up to TGIFF, which is at the amazing Plum and June this week:










and because I hand stitched the binding (does that count??) I'm linking with the fabulous Katie:
