Bookshelf quilt – part two

It’s been a while since I bloged about my bookshelf quilt but I am back to it for last few days.

Before I stopped, I was adding background space with Kona ash / grey fabric and I hoped I had enough but I didn’t typically. So then bought a half yard of it and started putting them together again last Monday. By Tuesday it was quite clear I still didn’t have enough of it! By how much? Two 6.5″ squares and one 5.5″ by 4″. I went back to Fluffy sheep quilting to buy a fat quarter and I finally got all the fabric for the background.

book blocks!

I choose lilac spraytime from Makower for shelving or sashing in quilt term and they are all 1″ strips.

Block assemble has began(while I was waiting for the last fat quarter) and done(after I got it obviously).

It looks like very wide and short, doesn’t it? It’s actually almost 79″ by 79″(almost 2m). And most importantly every blocks fitted together!

I have picked a fabric for the border which is a very pale yellow fabric. After I put that I am going to leave it until I get ideas for what to do with quilting.
