Hi, everyone! Sorry for the delay in posting, but I have lots to show you today! I'll try to cut the chit-chat to a minimum.
First up - I finished the X Plus Table Runner!
I'm very pleased with how it came out!
I can see it spending a lot of time right there on my dining room table.
I've also been working hard sewing the binding on the big X Plus Quilt! I told you that I had pieced the binding - more scrappy than even normal for me - so I had to be very careful about where those seams would fall. If they are too close to a corner, it's a nightmare to try to make a nice, neat mitered corner. I cut it VERY close on this one:
Whew. Here's my idea of the perfect corner:
The closest seam is right under my thumb.
Before I knew it, I was DONE! Here's a look at the back:
Maggie clearly approves.
Perhaps too much.
While the back is facing up, and until someone decides to get off the quilt, let's do a close up of the quilting:
I'm really happy with how it came out - and the thread choice ended up being a perfect fit!
Let's move on to the front.
Umm ... OK, a couple detail shots first:
The contours will be even more pronounced after I wash it.
Here's the front!
And an over-all view:
This quilt is for us, so I had no qualms letting Maggie test it out. Or laying it on the floor, for that matter.
It feels good to be completing things!
Thanks for reading!
Love your table runner and your new quilt! You do such a beautiful job with the bindings!ReplyDelete
