Moda Fresh Flowers ~ ready to put together!

For Ms. Diva’s Fresh Flowers Quilt with fabric from Moda, I am adding a band of pieced fabric to tie in the patchwork from the front of the quilt into the back piece.  It seems to be a common theme in lots of quilts today.  Personally I think it adds some spunk to an otherwise blank canvas.  I also have plenty of left over ‘bricks’ from the front to use for this back band of fabric.  So… it is a win-win.


To add some more yellow to the border of the band {which is primarily blue and red} I picked out a sunny yellow embroidery thread, and then used my machine’s triple stitch {set at 2.5 stitch length} to sew along and define a border.


This is a technique I have picked up from purse making, and as an added bonus… it not only adds style, but also durability to the seam by catching the ends of all the bricks and reinforcing the seam.


I can’t wait to get this quilt finished!!!
