Another finish!

attaching binding strips
It's always exciting to announce a finished quilt, but when it's the second finish in a week, AND when the finish actually meets the goal you set for yourself, well that's just a great day! My UFO for the month of June was my Broken Dishes quilt, made from red reproduction blocks received almost 2 years ago in one of Barb Vedder's block swaps

The blocks were sewn into a quilt top at winter retreat last year using a layout from Hyacinth Quilt Designs
The quilt was machine quilted over the past month using a combination of free motion curves and straight lines. More info can be seen here and hereThe binding took 4 evenings to stitch down and the quilt was finished on the very last day of June. Finished size is 48" square.

This is gorgeous. I've never really been tempted to do a red and white quilt or even a broken dishes one, but this really sparkles. Was it a challenge using blocks sewn by many quilters?

A great finish - great setting with lots of negative space to set off the red! I am just now taking a look at my swap blocks -
