I was able to finish a quilt that I was suppose to give away in the middle of May, but I was not able to finish it in time. Now it is finished, and I think it turned out wonderfully! I kind of want to keep it for myself, but I labeled it for the happy couple.
The backing I choose is perfect for the front, and compliments it well. I quilted it with simple waves across the width of the quilt. The quilt pattern is from Cheryl's Meadow Mist blog, called Magnolia Mystery that was hosted from July 2017 through March 2018. She is hosting a new QAL this year that starts in July. Check it out if you love plus signs. The quilt looks to be awesome, but I have too many other irons in the fire.
One close up to finish off the quilt. I am very proud of it. I used a linen for the background, and binding. The binding was tougher to sew through as I hand sew my bindings down. In the end I love the look, and we will see how it washes up this weekend, when I put it through the wash before boxing it up and sending it off to the happy couple.
This is my 4th finish for the quarter, my first time finishing that many, and two of them being big quilts too, is awesome! This is on my Quarter 2 Finish-A-Long list as number 48.
