|I really like the red binding!|
As I was putting it all together I was thinking about how much history this quilt has, mostly from before I started working on it. The hand-stitched nine patch blocks came from my dad's girlfriend, that was helping with an estate sale. She rescued them from the trash and passed them along to me. Well, Kathy, I hope I did you proud with them :-) The rest of the fabric in the quilt, except the binding and backing, were from the same box of fabric she gave me, so quite a bit got used!
|Detail of the quilting. I did varied sized loops. I wanted them to be tight though, to help add strength to the quilt, since I worry about the hand stitching (which will probably be fine...).|
|The back is a navy blue, which I kind of wish I had used for the sashing...but oh well, I like it for the backing too.|
|The label, not quite as nice as I would have liked, but machine sewing the binding on was a little tricky around the corners.|
So now I have no quilts in progress! But I just ordered some fabric for the next one, and while I wait I think I will figure out all the details for a second-next one. Gotta keep busy!
