I finished another quilt! I made this based on a quilt I saw at a show earlier this year and looked up the Missouri Star Quilting Company tutorial on exploding blocks. I used a Moda charm pack called Mon Ami, the background fabric is a calico from Ikea! I made up a scrappy binding from my stash.
Here's a full view of the front.
The back gives you a better view of the quilting. I stitched in the ditch round the printed fabric and quilted diamonds into the backing fabric. The backing is made of the same calico as the top, the two leftover squares from the charm pack and a cute Moda fabric I had in my stash.

The smaller strips of fabric came from a scrap bag I bought at the Festival of Quilts, and I knew they had to go with the orange fabric which was a bargain from the Birmingham Markets.
The backing fabric came from Ikea and it was quilted using Cotty cotton thread in Pot Pourri.
