Quilt Finished

Pin It
Yay! I finished sewing the binding onto my quilt today. It is officially finished.
I managed to take it out for  quick photo shoot before it went too dark and rainy, so here they are.
There's the usual washing line photo that we all resort to from time to time.



One draped over the shed door. I'm quite pleased with this one. I like the geometric patterns of the quilt against the brick and wood.



And one across a wooden bench. Some leaves photo bombed the shot, so I'll always know what time of year I finished this quilt!


Back indoors, it's all rolled up ready and waiting for someone to snuggle up under it tonight.


Here's a peek at the backing and binding.
I love the bright navy polka dot against the solid red binding. I was going to use the remaining pieces of jelly roll and make a scrappy binding. I'm so glad I went for the solid red. I think it frames the quilt well.



I echo quilted around the shapes and along the sashings. Not perfectly, more of a whimsical effect. In other words, I'm not patient enough to go slowly and accurately, but I'm happy with it.

Vital Statistics:

Finished quilt size: 55"x 73"
Fabric for quilt top: Reunion Jelly Roll by Sweetwater for Moda
Backing:  Bright navy polka dot, source unknown
Binding: Solid red

  3. I'm looking for the jelly roll patterns and can't find them. The links aren't working for them. Can you tell me where to find this pattern and the others you have? Thanks!

  20. I got mine on a stand at a quilt show.(not sure which stand now) I think some shops still have Reunion yardage, but I haven't seen pre-cuts in stores for a while.

  22. Almost Scandinavian in its simplicity and graphic nature. I hope you will make the pattern and instructions available. Many of us would love to make our own version.
