I know, Nathan’s is not quite finished, but it’s 98% done. Handsewing the binding is taking me forever. Hopefully I”ll finish it tonight.
Both quilts are made entirely of backing fabrics, which were 2.5m or 2.25m wide. It’s really helped to keep the cost down. Both quilts are approx 1.8m by 2m, and have wool batting. All up they have cost less than $150 each to make. Very affordable.
I wanted make Nathan’s quilt using the same pattern as Matt’s, but couldn’t get backing fabric in the colours I wanted as the local shops were low on stock, I didn’t think I had time to order online, but in retrospect I think I should have, as although I like Nathan’s quilt it’s not the cream and emerald green one that was in my head.
