Washi Tape Quilt

When I first saw this Washi Tape fabric I could NOT resist even though I wasn't really sure what washi tape even was. The internet has since explained the in's and out's to me and I have some washi tape of my own on it's way to me in the mail. :)

I only bought a yard and debated for quite a while what the best use for it would be. It's one of those prints that deserves to be shown off. I'm not sure how successful I was at that but I ended up choosing a block from the Batch of Brownies pattern in The Practical Guide to Patchwork book.

If you want to see something in the works using the whole Washi collection then check out Marta's spiderweb block! That quilt is going to be amazing!

I did a wide sashing in Kona Snow.

Honestly, I was feeling a little ho-hum about this quilt until I added the aqua binding. I was undecided on what to use for the binding and at first I almost went with a white binding but I'm glad I didn't.

The backing is a polka dot that I scored for like $4.50 a yard that coordinates perfectly with the rest of the quilt! Love when that happens!
