Trying for a finish…………..

I have had the backing and batting for this quilt hanging over a rail of my longarm frame for almost 2 months.  Finally yesterday I sewed the seam in the backing, loaded it and quilted it.

I chose this gray/beige Jinny Beyer print for the binding.  I didn’t want to emphasize any one color with 9 different color blocks in the quilt so I went neutral.

I have just a narrow band of it showing here and it looks good with the front and backing.  I cut the binding but didn’t sew it on yet.

I also sewed the last four blocks and played with the layout.  I’ll check it later today to see if I’m still happy with it and then sew it together.  There are some old fabrics in these blocks, from the late 1980s and early 1990s all the way up to a few new ones I have purchased in the last few years.

  1. working on the house has really thrown my sewing off, I had planned on machine quilting two tops several months ago and they are still hanging over my quilting frame waiting to be picked up – I do hope to get to them soon – yours looks wonderful.

  2. I remember seeing this quilt on your longarm, but could only see part of it. It really is beautiful, especially with the colors you have chosen. Hopefully you will post a picture of the entire quilt when it is bound, so we can enjoy looking at the finished product. Our son left yesterday, so it's back to sewing and baking for Christmas.

  3. Your finished quilt is beautiful with all those straight lines. I have seen this quilt in person and it is just beautiful with all the various fabrics you have used. Your new quilt top is going to be quite striking also. You do amazing quilting Wanda.
