Just a few days ago I shared my last completed blocks for Happy Quilting's Irish Chain Twist Quilt Along. Finding myself with some time in my sewing room, I have already sewn up all the blocks into a flimsy. Yay for a finished quilt top!
I always enjoy Melissa's Quilt-Alongs. This is my third one. As usual, her instructions were great and the steps were broken down so the work for each week was very achievable.
This quilt did cause me to work a bit out of my comfort zone. I am not a big fan of a lot of white space. But the 1930's fabric I wanted to use up needed a white background. I was also a bit challenged with the wonky lines. But I trusted the process and explored something I wouldn't normally do and the quilt turned out fine.
Here is a view of it pinned on one of my design walls. I am happy to say this quilt has FINALLY depleted all of my reproduction prints. There still might be a small scrap or two but all of the bigger pieces are now gone.
Here is a shot of the fabric for the backing. I was even able to find it on discount at a recent quilt store visit. I think it looks like it was made for this quilt!
Can you see the seam I put in? I love to always try and match up the print on my backing. This one was an easy one.
I actually finished up the quilting already - can you believe it!?!. I will be revealing the finished quilt later in April. Melissa will be putting together a quilt parade showing all of the finished quilts on April 23rd. You definitely won't want to miss it!
