I am delighted to show you my latest finished quilt. It is a record turn around time for me...started on New Year's Day and finished in March - yes, in the same year!!
It was the New Year's Day mystery pattern from Planet Patchwork. Between piecing the top and the quilt back, I used up almost all of my Dr. Seuss yardage.
I had a great time machine quilting this one!
I quilted hearts along the white rails.
Along the blue sections I quilted my favorite Dr. Seuss quote:
“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”
It was fun to quilt, but it is difficult to see the quilting on the finished quilt...that's OK...I know what it says and I know it's there!
The border has my favorite swirly design, which is just so fun to quilt!
And in the 4 corner blocks I quilted large wonky (let's say I did it on purpose!!) circles.
I just love the binding...
mostly red and white polka dots and some red and white striped fabric.
I must admit I like the back as much as the front! I used up the 3 panels I had purchased and filled in with the leftover FQ's.
This is my 5th finished quilt for 2012, and I think it is my favorite so far!!
