I have pieced my Belfast Bulletin, my pale ombre quilt. As explained before, I wanted to do a quieter version of the Kelly's Postcard From Sweden, and Sarah's blue ombre hst quilt fitted the bill. I had the top pieced up a week or so ago.
Over the weekend I pieced the backing. I used a Cotton and Steel button fabric bought from the Eternal Maker in Chichester. I used the offcuts from the fabrics to make a ladder.
I had only the tiniest bit left of the palest blue, I can't quite remember the colour. It is total coincidence that I only have one rung of the ladder in this pale blue, and even more of a coincidence that this ended up dead centre. I like these happy coincidences.
For now that's it. Linking up now with Sandra and the Postcard From Sweden link up.
The next stage is basting. The back breaking bit. That will be my next bulletin update on this quilt.
