I finally finished this quilt.
As a reminder, I didn’t make the top. I bought it at a guild treasure hunt many years ago. Someone gave the top away. I thought it was a great way to practice my FMQ. I do not make a lot of quilts each year because life is busy and I enjoy the process. This particular year I was very much into FMQ and I was intent on practicing my FMQ. Practicing on a quilt top I purchased seemed like a great idea. I think I bought it for $5. I can’t remember. But I thought it was cute and now I have a quilt ready to gift if I need a gift. Well, many years later and it was still sitting in my bag of quilt tops.
This was the year that I put it in my queue to quilt. It was quilted with my Bernina Q20 (sit down long arm).
I pieced the back and I used fabric from my stash. The only thing I couldn’t find in my stash was a good binding fabric. I decided I wanted an orange to match the darkest orange in the top and I didn’t have anything in my stash. So at the last anniversary sale from my LQS (the one just a few weeks ago), I purchased this fabric.
I’m really happy with it.
And now it is finished. And I took a picture and posted it so it’s not just finished, it’s finished Finished FINISHED!
Happy celebratory dance all the way around.
I tried hard to get this done in time for Sunday Stash but I didn’t so it will be in next week’s post.
