Do you hear that? It's clapping! I have finished Volume! I started working on this baby in March. Seriously, March. I have never celebrated the completion of just a top in a quilt before (you have already seen those pics), but now the quilting and binding too! This is seriously some of my best work (pat on back ensues).
Enough talking. Let's do pictures. Be warned, there are many.
|The Dartmouth Common was beautiful this afternoon. |
Is there anything better than fall afternoon light? I think not
|I tried random quilting lines for the first time. I just let myself go with my instinct and used my walking foot. I like the back of this quilt as much as I like the top! With the great texture of the quilting and the Ikea Britten Nummers ...yum!|
|Oh and I am moving on from white thread for quilting. |
These days I am all about color! And I think I may be addicted to mustard colored thread.
|For binding I went with this Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley print. I was not sure of it, but now that it is on, I think it was a good choice.|
|I thought this picture was terrible because of the shadows, |
but you can see the whole fence reflected. Cool.
Oh I am so in love with this quilt. Now that it is all done with pictures, it has a place ready for it on a wall on the main floor of our house. Where I can look at it every day.
The other good news is that finishing this quilt was my Lovely Year of Finishes Goal for September. Made it just under the wire!. So I am off to link up there and also I am going to link up later tis week at TGIFF!
Do you have a favorite quilt out of the quilts you have made this year? I think this is mine:)
