Whew! This nearly 4 year in the making queen sized quilt is COMPLETE! I bought a charm pack of Recess by American Jane while visiting Summer - she has some cool quilt shops near her! When I started this project I had no idea what ALL was involved in quilt making. I originally thought I'd hand quilt this monster but then decided to use a darning foot to turn my sewing machine into a free motion quilting machine. Talk about lots of material to maneuver around and lots of learning on the way!
After much debate, I decided to machine stitch the binding for times sake. It turned out just fine and peaked my interest in machine stitched binding. The back is a large piece of quilt backing that I purchased for an awesome price....so I used it - even if it didn't really match. I promise when I'm curled up in it at night I don't notice!
I have completed so many WIP's this year and, let me tell you, it feels wonderful!
Happy Memorial Day!
