Royal Gardens is Finished

Royal Gardens is finished!  This was started in August 2017, and was finished in April 2018, and is currently on our bed, which is beautiful!  I finished something for my house and did not give it away (first time ever)! I completed the quilting on it, and "sewed" down the binding for my church's quilt show in March, however I was finally able to finish sewing the binding down in April.





The backing was found on clearance through Connecting Threads.  I have gotten a ton of compliments on the back as it could be a quilt within itself.  I feel like it matches well to the front, and compliments it.  The red binding is perfect for both sides, and gives the quilt a nice frame.




The pictures my husband took of the quilt are awesome!  I love this shot, with just a little bit of the sky peaking through, and it shows off the quilting.  The quilting was custom, I love how it turned out.  I worked on my feathers and custom quilted each border, which was interesting.  I flipped the quilt 90 degrees after quilting all the way down on the long-arm to quilt the borders so they looked cohesive.  It turned out in the end, but one border has some puckers in it.

Overall, I am more than happy I got this quilt done, my husband keeps complimenting me on it as he loves having it on our bed.  This is a project on my Quarter 2 Finish-A-Long list, as number 38.  Two done for the quarter, lots to go!

  3. How nice to be able to sleep under such a beautiful quilt and that seems like a quick make for all of the details it has. Congratulations on your finish and thanks for participating in Finish-A-Long on behalf of the 2018 FAL hosts.
