100 days 100 blocks

I participated in the #100days100blocks challenge on Instagram. I missed posting my block on one day. The challenge finished in December and someone has another challenge to finish you quilt by 25 January, which I have gone with days to spare. 

I mixed fabrics by Aneela's Hoey for Moda Fabrics with Kona plains from stash. Simply Solids had a 30% off flash sale around Xmas so I worked out how much I needed and bought Essex dyed linen in Steel. 

I quilted it with an all over feather design which worked beautifully until the last row. Once finished I quickly machined a 2" binding to the front of the quilt and spent one day last week just hand stitching the binding down. It is now ready for our local Eisteddfod.

It's beautiful, congrats on finishing. I played along on IG too but alas mine is still waiting to have the quilting finished. Thank you for linking up on behalf of the 2017 global Finish-A-Long hosts.
