I feel like I have been working on this quilt forever. For years, the cut pieces for this quilt have been in a bag sitting in the corner of my sewing room. A few weeks ago I shared the finished flimsy. Well, I am pleased as punch to say it is now a finished quilt!
This quilt is made from Kaffe Fassett Shot Cottons, Woven Stripes and Floral Prints. Not sure I would have put these fabrics together now but I do like how it turned out. So much color!
Here is a closer look at the piecing. Lots of bias edges on this one!
(What was I thinking....)
I quilted a bunch of giant mums all over the quilt. I really like the texture this pattern creates.
When I pulled the backing piece out of the bag, it wasn't quite big enough. I seemed to recall stealing some for another project years back. Luckily I had some leftovers from the top to stretch it out a bit.
This was the oldest UFO on my list! It feels wonderful to see it finished up - something to certainly celebrate. Oh Happy Friday!
...and what makes this finish even sweeter is it is one of my second quarter goals for the 2016 Finish A Long.
Two down and two more to go!
