This quilt is notable for a couple of reasons First, it’s the first time I did such a variety of quilting on a full size quilt. Second, it’s the first quilt finish where I don’t have a recipient in mind. That’s right, I am now an official quilt stasher.
These pictures were taken at Chopin Park in Oshawa, I asked the teenagers playing there if they would hold up the quilt and they were happy to help. Don’t let your face show, yelled one friend. Good, I’m glad they are savvy to social media safety.
Pattern from Quilty Habit (Jessica) with added 8″ border (Waterfront Park by Violet Craft, in case you’re wondering)
Finished size 66″ x 84″
warm and natural batting
Started August 2016, Finished February 2017.
This is my favourite section, practicing layered quilting (from the Craftsy class by Christina Cameli).
My second favourite part is the scrappy rainbow binding (helped by my short person photo-bomber). Because I pieced the quilt title and year into the front, my label on the back is only my name and town.
I must say, it feels really satisfying to have this quilt finished. What should I work on next? Linking up to TGIFF, and the global hosts for the finish a long (goals here).
