All done! Yay! My husband and I drove to Halifax (4 hours away) earlier this week so I could be interviewed on Live at 5 and take part in a reading series to promote my novel The Town That Drowned. As we drove, I happily sewed down the binding on this quilt.
Although each of my kids have asked for this quilt, it is mine all mine! :-) (They are each getting Christmas quilts soon anyway)
The tutorial I wrote to make the squares is here, should you want to make one of these quilts too (It's a fun project!). The squares are 6 inch squares.
And look what showed up in our yard overnight. In this pic the quilt is camouflaging itself. With all the selvages this quilt has more white in it than any quilt I've made.
This photo shows the backing and binding. The backing is a large scale Jennifer Paganelli print. The binding is a Lakehouse fabric -- pink and orange stripes. The binding fabric definitely called my name.
I quilted it myself. On one side of each seam I used a straight line and on the other side a wavy line (a stitch on my machine, I didn't have to move the fabric around). I used the regular foot on my machine, still no walking foot for me.
This quilt is being featured today on ...
Thanks so much Heather!
See you next week! Hope everyone has a great weekend. Posted by Riel Nason on The Q and the U
