A Finish!

This quilt is going to my Sister in Law.

It was on hold for a while as I waited for fabric ordered for the binding.

The LQS was out of the blue Moda Grunge I used in the middle border and wanted for the binding. A bolt was ordered – back in May – and happily it arrived last Monday!

Binding on! Plus, here you can see the match stick quilting and curves quilted at the corners.

Here is the quilt on my queen size bed. The pattern is Curve it Up by Sew Kind of Wonderful. The yellow border was added so quilt fits a queen mattress. This is the largest quilt I’ve quilted on my Baby Lock Tiara III. 92″ x 105″

I quilted one block at a time. Sashing was quilted in a zig zag design,  all remaining white spaces quilted with meandering & loops. I followed the line of the curved piecing in the borders, adding circled in the wide yellow border for interest. Find more details and photos here.

Splash quilts are pieced and appliqué is underway!

Finishing the Splash quilts will be my July OMG, a quilt party sponsored by Patty of Elm Street Quilts.

    Hi Sharon! Yay to finally getting the binding fabric for Curve It Up. Your SIL is going to be thrilled when she sees it, especially on her bed. It.looks.so.nice. I love seeing the closeup photos of your quilting, and the addition of the circles was brilliant. It looks so classy. LOVE it. Thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

    You did a FABULOUS job! I love the match stick quilting, the scallops in the outer border, and the zigzag quilting in the close up photo — that ties in so nicely with the chevron design that you pieced into the backing. What a beautiful finish!
