I thought it would then take no time to finish it off... um, well, no. I got the whole thing pieced this afternoon. It's been a busy week of needing to do various errands and I only managed a little bit here and there and then the final trimming took way longer because I was being quite pedantic about making sure everything was going to line up.
I'm quite pleased with how it came out. I chose these fabrics for Max since I really liked them and I thought we could possibly get away with turning it into a boy quilt. When I started piecing I was a bit worried it looked too babyish and I was prepared for him to tell me he didn't like it, which was OK since a good friend is having a baby boy soon. But on the whole he says he likes most of the fabrics, not so much the "pink flowers". Luckily I pre-empted that and only used that print once instead of twice, it needed that little bit more red.
If I were to do it again I might have all the fabrics running in the same direction around the wheel but the way I cut them with the wedges interlocking had the least fabric wastage. I bought a FQ of each of these prints (Monaluna Taali from Moona Fabrics on Etsy) and really have not made much of a dent in them. The solid is a Moda Bella Solid but I didn't get the name, I bought it from my LQS in a sale last weekend. On Googling it looks like it could be Horizon Blue?
The quilt top measures 42" square and I'm in two minds about making it a bit longer on top and bottom? I have some time to think about it as I won't be quilting it straight away - I need to move onto the next urgent projects...
