It's done, and it's gorgeous if I do say so myself. Now, tons of glamour shots.
Pretty in the sun, huh? That is a completely unaltered photo! (except cropping).
The back - wrinkly but fun. I love the squares! It's subtle but I think it worked out.
Notice that I used the "cheater" binding - left an inch and a half all the way around the edge on the backing, then folded and top stitched. Despite some inconsistent width in some areas, I actually love the medium gray on the white - it makes a clear border, but doesn't distract from the colors!
A close up of some of the quilting- see the colored thread?
It is an awkward size - about 28" wide by 60" long. Not a hugely useful size (a little narrow for a lap quilt) but lovely to look at if I do say so myself. I'm so glad to have finished my first quilt, and more importantly that I'm happy with the end result!
This week is going to be great - my mail has been delivered with the jelly roll I'm using for the 100 quilts for kids QAL and my first half yard full bundle from the stash stack club (Pink Castle) has arrived!!! Pictures to come, buttons below.
I am also linking to several linky groups.
