Hide & Seek

Here is an early look at my Hide & Seek quilt made using 60-degree triangles.

When I was designing it, I came up wth the name, as it's to be for a child's bed. That name, along with the Tula Pink Sew Along which was announced shortly after, made my fabric decision easy. I'd already decided to use a solid plus a single range of fabric, and the creatures Tula hides in her fabric prints seemed a perfect match. Plus I wanted to use some of my stack of The Birds and the Bees! I really loved using these fabrics, and the light green solid I'd bought recently was just right.

By the time I'd cut the border strips from the hot pink, I didn't quite have enough left for the binding, so I interspersed it with shorter lengths of the light green

This quilt came together really quickly, and the quilting was quick and fun, too (ribbons along the solid border and the green 'path', open feathers in the rest of the centre and stippling in the pieced border). It's been all finished and photographed for several weeks now. Eleanor helped out with the photography session down by our creek.

The pattern will be a project in an upcoming issue of Australian Patchwork & Quilting magazine.

Really neat effect with the binding - I like that! Good thing you didn't have enough of the hot pink. ;D
