fire & ice quilt is getting into shape

In my last post I introduced the fire block. Now it is time to have a look on the ice block.

The colors are cool, reminding of floating icebergs near the poles.  This block put together with pieces from 2 different log cabin or better said courthouse steps block. I have finished the top, now I am waiting for the batting to arrive. In the meantime I have time to decide what kind of fabrics I shall take for the backing. Should I stick to the solids or get a fabric with a bright pattern?

Anyway, I am happy with the result. This was my very first time that I worked entirely with solids. It was a pleasure selecting the colors, Kona solids are available in so many wonderful shades and hues.

I have also finished one more MINI pattern :  Happy Birthday Quilt for this little couch throw.

In the meantime I shall work on a baby quilt – looking forward to work on something smaller!!

Thanks for stopping, Barbora

    That is just beautiful. I think I would keep it simple with a solid color backing.

      Thanks for your comment and your suggestion for the backing. I think solid is the best solution as it is a continuation of the top.
