Checkerboard Herringbone in Notting HIll fabrics

This is the first quilt I made this year, and I actually finished it back in January. I wanted to do something with these larger scale prints (from Joel Dewberry's line Notting Hill) that would still show off the prints, but that I would be able to cut out of a fat quarter. I used this tutorial (by crafty blossom - grey and white herringbone quilt) as an idea for what I wanted. I have no idea if my sizing is the same, but hers is cut as triangles, and mine are cut as parallellograms.

 For the backing I was able to use this Primrose print and it ended up being perfect for the quilting. I just quilted it from the back so I could trace the flowers. The tension wasn't perfect on the front, but I love the pattern of it, and I think with a few washes, no one will notice. I think I'll try it again on a future quilt.

And isn't this a great binding? It's one of my favorite prints from the line - called tartan. I love it. And I love how it turned out.
