Dig Deep - Luna Lounge
Most of the time I focused on the backing and predominately used a FQ stack of Pop rox in the choco color way, an earlier fabric line of Carol's. They played so well together and I especially love Gyros in black, so good!
The gradiant blue streaks running down the front are the same concept representing the color change of the ocean from waters edge to deep sea.
The binding change up from Tapioca to Sandstone at the design break is subtle but effective and easier to see in this close up. Not everyone enjoys the binding step but I do. especially with Andover's Textured Solids because it hand-stitches like butter and is nice and soft for the edge. Because the weave is looser than the other quilt cotton, I did use my pinking blade rotary when I cut my strips.
