2016 Finish: Honey Honey

At some point in the past, I may have given this quilt a cutesy name. However it's been so damn long that I don't actually remember what I called it.

2016 Q1 Finishes

The fabric is Kate Spain's Honey Honey from, oh, 2013? 2014? And the cream is (I think) Bella Solids (but I don't remember the colour). That's how long ago I did it, and how little I remember of it!

It's been sitting around with a backing and a batting for ages, and I simply didn't get to quilting it. I wanted to quilt it myself because of the large amounts of negative space, except...time. And opportunity. And a whole bunch of other things. Not least of which I decided that, having made this, I didn't actually like the fabric and colour choices anymore...

I am, however, quite proud of the quilting:

So, it's done, it's bound, and I have to work out what to do with it. Possibly give away as a gift? I feel kind of bad giving something away that I'm not satisfied with, even if it's a question of style and taste, and not one of quality.

Linking up to the 2016 Finish-Along!

Rhonda's [Quilt] Ramblings


  1. It's really lovely! You can't go wrong with Kate Spain! I, too, have just finished something I started in 2012 - so satisfying to get it finished.

  2. That would be a great quilt for a tween girl, and really it has to suit the recipients tastes, so give it away and be proud of the work you did.

  3. I had a finish this year from 2013...It ended up having several lines from the same designer...**shrug** #designdecision Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global FAL hosts

  4. It's beautiful work, great finish!
