ALYoF June finish...

...another quilt finished.
I used Moda's El Gallo designed by Deb Strain.
I wanted the black binding on the front but not on the back.
I decided on the 2-fabric binding and it's perfect.
My 2-fabric binding tutorial is HERE.
 ...just love the blacks, greys and reds...
and those dots!!

To make this 48" x 56" quilt you need
42 - 10" squares and 42 - 5" squares.

I saw this Fold and Sew techique on a You Tube video...
by Peg Spradlin

Peg used sashing to separate the blocks and 
she centered all the 5" squares.
I chose to make my quilt without the sashing and off set the 5" squares.
I love them both...
I have made this quilt 3 times...and I know I will make many more is fast and simple...perfect for a lap quilt!!
There are so many Christmas collections I love 
and I can see me making some as Christmas gifts...or
how about a Halloween quilt?

  1. Another fantastic finish. I agree about the grey and red looking wonderful together. The blocks are very effective. And of course I love the red on the back, too.
    Lovely sunshine in this photo.

  2. Really beautiful quilt! I have never seen a two colour binding before - what a cool idea!

  3. that's a great quilt!!! Love the colours too

  4. This is such a great quilt. Love this particular color combo, one of my favorites. Beautiful job.

  5. This is a great finish. Wonderful colors and I really like the prints you used. Nice job.

  6. Beautiful, I too watched the tutorial and used it as the basis for my first ever quilt, mines not quite as fabulous add yours but I'm proud of my first effort. I also did a two colour binding, I just sort of winged it! Great minds think alike

  7. That is a great quilt. Love the fabrics and the quilting is great! Congrats on your finish.
