Far Far Away 2 quilt

This top has been finished for a couple of weeks but I'm really not sure what to back it with or how to quilt it.  I'd better decide soon though as I haven't got much time to finish it before my trip!


  1. This is so pretty. Is it done with set in seams? I just can't figure out how you pieced it. I just love though. One of the cutest uses of that HR fabric line. I'd love to know what pattern you used or if you designed yourself.

  2. Thanks for your comment! I must confess, I don't know what set it seams are :) I fussy cut each picture then gave them each a 2 inch border before putting them all together. I didn't use a pattern - I told my husband what dimensions I wanted it to end up being and he helped me with the math. There are 8 blocks that started with a 5X5 square (to which I added a 2 inch border), 4 blocks that were 8X5 (plus border) and 4 blocks that were 11X5. Hope that's clear - I'm an internet-taught quilter and am just learning so I don't know all the lingo!

  3. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain your method. Gotta love those math minded husbands! Again, your quilt is wonderful. I too am a self taught quilter and am thankful for people like you who have helped along the way. Looking forward to seeing what you create in the future.
    PS Love your blog name.
