After two years, I’ve finished my Ice Cream Soda quilt! It was a deliberately slow project, and I’ve enjoyed having some portable stitching to take out with me. I just had to pack supplies for a blossom or two in a bag.
The colours were inspired by a Kaffe Fassett fabric – you can see more about the fabric pull here. The background has tiny, uneven dots, which made me think of the night sky.
This is the most quilting I’ve ever done on a quilt, and I’m so pleased with the effect. I stitched through each of the points of the centre stars, in straight lines across the quilt.
The background is an interesting fabric which I bought in a destash and dyed pewter – it was white. It’s cotton with metallic threads running through it, which give a lovely crumpled texture – and a bit of sparkle too.
