Hope Valley Quilt – All Sewn Up

April 18, 2010 at 11:03 pm 10 comments

Here she is, quilted and bound, ready to go on display at work.  I’m really happy with how it’s turned out.  I will post final measurements tomorrow as I have not yet washed and crinkled it.  Crinkle.  It’s a technical term.  I used straight line quilting, about one inch apart.  I just wasn’t feeling stippling or loops were going to be the right match for this one.  Binding is Kaffe Fassett’s shot cotton in smoky.  It’s a really good blue.  Here’s the back -

Every last scrap I had went into the back.  I love doing that.  Also, the back on this one can stand on its own.  I’ll be using both sides I think.

So…now that you’ve seen the completed quilt…won’t you join in and quilt along?  Remember…there are goodies to be won…. a full set of all of Denyse Schmidt’s quilt patterns go to one lucky quilt along quilter.   Join in the fun!

    Beautiful! The colors are lovely and I especially love the back. How did you quilt it? Did you use a walking foot? I love the picture with your happy girls!

    This looks great! Tina of Paisley & Lace told me of your blog. I am nearly finished with a picnic blanket canvas quilt. Tina taught me the safety pin basting. Now I am binding today!
