From a quilt top:
Which sat waiting its turn. Waiting. Patiently. For MONTHS! NO! Not in the driveway!!!
Then (eventually) it was "locked and loaded" on the longarm:
Stitch by stitch, it was changed into a partially quilted top:
Then it was a quilted top:
ALL over the course of ONE DAY!!!
Eventually, it was trimmed... thanks to my weekly Summer Sewing with my good friend Needleb:
Here is a floor photo...
...One of the back of the quilt...
This one shows a more accurate representation on the backing:
And for a different perspective, a shot from the other direction:
I had an idea for the binding:
It took a lot of colors and a LOT of sewing:
It also took an equal amount of pressing:
It was finally ready to be bound, but that took a bit longer than it might have due to a hair-brained scheme modeled after Bowie on the Ravelry Quilters Knitting group. Matchy-matchy binding:
I think the result was worth the effort:
The quilt measures 54" x 72" and will be a gift for a dear friend:
This is what the completed quilt looks like from the front:
Here's another look at the bound (and delivered) quilt:
If you could hear her, you would hear her saying,
" Mine. Mine!!"
(I *think* she likes it.)
Thank you, again, Angela, from the So Scrappy blog for hosting the Rainbow Scrap Challenge as a way to encourage us to USE our scraps... one color at a time (and sometimes more.) I have enjoyed quilting along with you for the last several years and I am SEW pleased to (FINALLY) complete my first RSC quilt!
ETA... Linked up to Oh Scrap!!
Until next time...
With persistence, finished happens!!!
Ignore the people and the shadow, but just LOOK at how the quilting POPS!! Color me happy. :o))
