Today I am sharing a finished quilt! Oh it is so gratifying to be able to say that! I made the top a couple of months ago and wrote a tutorial on the technique I used (see it HERE).
To complete it, I used some backing fabric that has been in my stash for several years now. It is called Casey Scroll and is from one of Jennifer Paganelli’s earlier lines, Bell Bottoms. It is to this day, one of my favorite fabrics ever!! I have it in several colorways, but this was my last big piece. It is hard to see it go, but ultimately that is what fabric is for, right?!?
The quilt is busy with all the various prints, so an allover medium stipple was my quilting of choice. It gives it a nice texture without competing with the fabrics.
The binding is a Lotta Jansdotter check from her “Echo” line. It is machine stitched from the front, catching the back in the stitches – my favorite method!
Measuring 50″ x 60″, it is the perfect size for a throw quilt. We love to have a stack of them next to the sofa so everyone can have their own when watching tv or a movie.
You can see I didn’t quite have enough of the Casey Scroll and added some leftover fabric from the front to make the back big enough. I love doing this as it enables me to use a smaller piece of a favorite fabric that I already have in my stash.
I has some good helpers with today’s photo shoot. Well, one of them didn’t help much…
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and as always,
