I don't seem to have many these days so it's exciting to be sitting here announcing a QUILT finish!
Back in February I shared a wee peek of some blocks I was making and I haven't talked about them since. The blocks are from a Sampler Quilt by Pen + Paper Patterns.
The block numbers multiplied and by March I finally had a top; basting time —
The fabrics I used are from various Poppie Cotton ranges, and the sewing was for the New Year's Launch at The Country Yard (discussed *here*) .
However I brought it home and have now finished the quilting.
It was a silly idea to do such a busy fill, but once I'd started I had to keep going - unless I wanted to unpick it all!!
By the time the New Year's Launch came around I wasn't finished. However, I sewed a bit of binding on and tidied it up. It looked reasonably presentable - and I'd done enough for people to see - it was/is a Block of the Month for the shop.
Serious shot —
Karen's Quilts, Crows and Cardinals. I love this technique/finish and have used it many times over the years. It is a nice way to machine sew on a binding.
'til next time,
I LOVE the quilt, especially the butterflies! Happy stitching!ReplyDelete
This is a beautiful quilt and you took some fun photos!ReplyDelete
Lovely quilt..worth all the work!ReplyDelete
Lots of work but such cute blocks and fun fabrics you chose--love the quilt!!ReplyDelete
What a lovely finish. Great photo shoot out on the farm.ReplyDelete
Fabulous quilt and the quilting is perfect for it..... wonderful finish....ReplyDelete
A really cute quilt. Fun and fresh--nice work. The quilting looks great, and I enjoyed the variety of photos around your place. I'll bet it feels so good to have it finished.ReplyDelete
Such a fun quilt and great to get it finished. I have some of those fabrics, and this week I had some girls here and one was doing that same binding! Now I have seen it twice in a week, does that mean I need to do it on one of my quilts??ReplyDelete
What a beauty! I’m sure lots of ladies will join in the BOM. Your quilting and the flange binding are the perfect finishing touches. Thanks for the link to the tutorial. I may try it one day.ReplyDelete
It looks lovely. That should be a fun BOM.ReplyDelete
Great to have a finish.
Beautiful finish Raewyn, lovely colours and fabrics. xxReplyDelete
Beautiful shots! This is a great quilt, lovely fabrics and colors, and beautiful blocks together. Your quilting is awesome!ReplyDelete
The flange binding by machine is demonstrated on Brenda's Conquering Mount Scrapmore YouTube channel, and I like it a lot. I don't like doing any binding, don't like machine binding the way it turned out before, but the flange does help and covers a multitude of sins, so to speak.
That's a gorgeous finish. Hadn't seen that Pen and Paper design before, off to look it upReplyDelete
That’s such a fun quilt. I’ll bet the sewalong was a big hit. Your color choices are so pretty together and your quilting looks beautiful.ReplyDelete
Hi Raewyn, what a lovely quilt...and that quilting! I hope you had fun FMQ, even if you had to hurry along. Thanks so much for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks. I love all of those pictures :-) Take care.ReplyDelete
Wow! A beautiful finish Raewyn....worth the wait xxReplyDelete
Love your orchard shots of your beautiful quilt, well done on the finish.ReplyDelete
A fabulous finish… all the blocks are lovely but the butterflies 🦋 are my favourite.ReplyDelete
Beautiful quilting and the flange binding looks great.
It is spring in the northern hemisphere so your quilt is timed perfectly. Love all the fun blocks. The snail is so cute. Congratulations on a beautiful finish and a successful photoshoot. When I finish a quilt, I pick a park with a lake or go to the banks of the Potomac river, and sometimes to a botanical garden with paid entry for a photoshoot. So I am slightly jealous that you have so many fun places to shoot right in your backyard. The chickens make everything fun :-)ReplyDelete
Lovely quilt ... It looks great and I like the out door photos........ReplyDelete
Wow this is a real beauty Raewyn! That quilting—! I had to enlarge some of the pics so I could drool/gaze at the motifs more closely! I love the last shot, but the one with the chickens is terrific too. Are you going to keep this one?ReplyDelete
