Officially Finished…with a few days to spare!

I am “Officially Finished” Amy and Bruce’s wedding quilt!  The quilt has a binding, a hanging sleeve…..

…and a label!!

The thing that surprised me the most was how much I loved having a hand-quilting project to work on.  I knew I would miss having something to stitch on in the evenings.  I kept thinking about my unfinished  blocks of “Bouquets for a New Day”.  I only have 4 blocks left to finish…. and a sawtooth border that is not going to make itself!!  Hopefully, I can get it finished in the near future so I do not suffer too long from “Hand-Quilting Withdrawal”!

I worked on this block today.    I am auditioning my fabrics for something that says “vase” to me.

I love this bit of detail.  It is ” reverse appliqued” so the background shows from underneath the leaf!

Til next time…..

  1. The more I got into hand quilting through the years, the more I feel ‘lost’ when I don’t have a quilt in the hoop. Not to worry–I have about 15 unfinished quilt tops waiting in the wings.:) Congrats on your absolute, final, total finish!! Audrey

  2. Very Beautiful! I offered a quilt for my daughter and new husband and she is still thinking about what she wants…someday she will find her design style…thanks for sharing!
