A big finish to announce...
drum roll please...
I finished the hand quilting and binding on my 36 patch scrap quilt, and it has already been gifted to it's new owners.
Here it is, in it's new environment up in gorgeous cottage country.
Just look at that amazing sky!
I like this photo which shows...
*the scrappy border made from the leftover squares,
*a bit of the white backing
*the diagonal quilting lines, and
*the light floral binding.
This was such a fun and happy quilt to "work" on, and I enjoyed every moment. I was amazed at how much I like the finished quilt, since I did not like many of the old (1990's) floral fabrics I used in piecing the blocks and was happy to be using them up.
I actually felt sad when the quilting was finished and the binding stitched down. The last stitches took way longer than they needed to, as I lingered over each one. I have some great memories stitched into this quilt!
Luckily I have another special quilt to enjoy more hand quilting today.
What are you stitching this week?
