The quilt top was finished in February 2017 which was record time for me (less than 4 months). Then it sat in the UFO closet until it was aged for the perfect amount of time, which was a total of 20 months. In November I got "a bee in my bonnet" and really wanted to finish this quilt before the next Quiltville mystery started.
The machine quilting took many hours over November and December and it was a joy to work on. The quilt measures 70" square and it was easy to manage the quilting on my domestic sewing machine, so I am encouraged to tackle some of my larger quilts this year.
This is what the quilting design looks like on the back of the quilt. I love this fabric which is from the "Good Neighbors" line by Amanda Jean Nyberg.
For the photo shoot I clipped the quilt to the fence during a rare moment when the sun was almost shining. This is the back of the quilt with the "Good Neighbors" yardage in the centre and leftover blocks and scraps on both sides. Looking at the photos I realize I forgot to put on a label. Again. I will sew one on "tomorrow".
It sure feels great to have a finished quilt on the last day of 2018!
I'm linking up to One Monthly Goal finishing party, and Design Wall Monday over at Judy's.
Congrats on a beautiful finish! What a satisfying accomplishment for the end of the year.
Congrats on a beautiful finish!
Boy, is that ever pretty! Congrats on the finish!
Congratulations on the finish! Beautiful!
Congratulations on finishing En Provence - your version is beautiful!
Good job!!! Now onto the next project...something new or something UFO!?!
Good for you Kathy to finish the quilt! It would take time to do the quilting on a domestic. Happy New Year!
Congratulations! I've followed along but never tackled a Bonnie Hunter mystery, because I always felt my scraps weren't varied enough. Your version gives me hope that I can someday do this! Happy New Year!
Lovely finish Kathy! :) Congratulations!!! Kathi
Great job! it is nice to get done with one of the mystery quilts before we start to put together the one for this year - have you made all of Bonnie's mysteries?
This is so pretty! Don't you just love that pieced border? I think it makes the quilt very unique. Well done!
I love your quilt! Your quilting is beautiful.
So that's what my UFOs are doing....aging the perfect amount of time! I think some of them are about there!
A great way to end the year ..... well done and I love your quilt!
Perfect way to end the year! It's beautiful. You quilting really is wonderful.
Ah, ah, ah. It's not "finished" until you put on the label. Don't wait, do it this week. I really like your more limited color scheme. Mine is still aging to perfection.
It is a beautiful and well deserved finish for your Kathy! Love that pieced backing too! Happy New year!
Congratulations, Kathy! The soft border print sets off the blocks so nicely. And, of course, I just love that pieced back. Happy 2019!
