I finished stitching the binding on this quilt last night. Some early morning sun really makes the quilting pop. And check out that clear, blue sky. After a summer of fires, it sure is nice to see the sky.
Pattern: String-x using the combo of this tutorial from Quiltville and this tutorial from Nittany Block Party to add the white borders. I made really long sets of strings and then cut what I need from those. This made left-over triangles that I turned into flying geese for the border.
Fabric: Domestic Bliss by Liz Scott for Moda Fabrics. This was 2 charm packs and a fat-eighth bundle of solids from Pink Chalk Fabric. I used Kona white for the borders and Kona coal for the corners.
Quilting: Free-motion quilting by me on my little ol' machine. I found the idea for the center pattern from a book from my local library. Wish I remember what it was. I thought about doing some straight line quilting 1/8" from both edges of the white border, but I have not the patience for that right now, so I'm calling it done.
Backed and bound with prints from the line.
Finished size: 49" x 67"
Finish date: September, 2012. (Started in February, 2012.)
I'm linking up to Amy's One Thing, One Week Challenge. My goal was to finish this quilt so I could get my pins back ;)
