In listing my finished projects on the pages portion of this blog, I realized that I never posted photos of several projects that I finished in 2015. I will do a series of posts to fix this!
First up is the quilt I made for my niece who got married in August of 2015. Since her mom is a quilter I was not certain she would want me to make a quilt for her daughter. I quickly realized that was not the case! LOL. It took a little figuring out with her mom just exactly what I would be able to make that she didn't already have. (Her mom has got most of it covered).
Once I had the colors, and chose the design things went pretty quickly. I used a pattern by Cherrie House and I LOVE how this quilt turned out! The chosen color scheme was teals (I added the green part).
Colors were chosen
Blocks were made
Obviously with some help!
Backing was chosen
The design placement took a LONG time. Good thing the block sewing went quickly!
Progress was made
The label was embroidered and ready to put on the back
Beautiful quilting was done (thanks Kathy)
Use up every scrap and extend the back length at the same time, win-win!
Isn't it gorgeous?
I decided to go with a two color binding. One color (all the front colors) for the back and the indigo, that matched the center pieces in the front, for the front.
LOVE the effect of this binding technique. (You can find a tutorial on my tutorial page)
One of my all time favories
All wrapped up and presented to Ashley and Chris at their wedding.
More finishes coming up soon.
