My charm square quilt is finally finished!
Of course, I had to make a trip to the fabric store before I could complete it because despite my large stash of fabric I had nothing suitable for the back and binding. In the end I really love the way the dark teal sets off all of the other colours. And the back is a snazzy blue with gold dots (with a really nice sheen.)
I am enjoying free-motion quilting more and more. It certainly gets easier with each quilt. Machingers (quilting gloves), a quilting table and a darning foot have all made it so much easier. Someday I might even work up the nerve to try a real “pattern!” This time I just created some nice lazy loops all over.
I realize that these pictures aren’t the best. If I still had the quilt with me I’d retake them, but this quilt is now for sale at a local store – eek! I can’t believe that after thinking about it for a couple of years I am now truly selling my sewing (outside of custom orders, that is.) I hope there are people out there who enjoy buying quilts and pillows as much as I like making them!
