This is my version of the Postcards from Sweden Quilt. I say "my version" because I didn't buy the kit, but I used what I had on hand. I was missing a few colors and thought it would be okay to replace them with something close. Well, I think I was wrong. This quilt really needs the gem stone shades that are used in the original quilt. I like my quilt, but I don't love it like I thought I would.
I quilted it with wavy lines running up and down the quilt. There are 5 per column. I went vertical because the backing fabric runs horizontal. I do love the back! It has the same bright colors as the front.
I auditioned many colors for the binding - gray, purple, green, pink, and orange. I really didn't want to use orange, but the warm color was the only thing that seemed to go. I would have used the darker orange, but it didn't go with the back. Picky, I know. I'm ready to move on to the next project though. This one took way too long!
