Kansas Dugout Scrap String Quilt - DONE!

Hi everyone!  Remember the Kansas Dugout quilt I finished piecing back in January?  January?!?  I thought it was way more recently than that, but there you go.  Anyway - I finished quilting it and binding it a few weeks ago and thought I'd show you how it turned out.

Here it is, once I quilted and trimmed it:


I agonized over how to quilt it, then realized I LOVE doing the wavy lines. I mean LOVE doing them. So you know ... why not?

I dug into my 2.5" scrap basket for the binding:


I also pieced the back:


A Kansas Dugout quilt calls for two different sunflower-themed fabrics, don't you think?

I decided to go with the "sew to the front, pull around to the back, but still sew from the front to secure the part in the back" method, like I did on the runner.  I used a lot of pins this time, so I wouldn't miss the fold in the back.


The front looks OK:

Sunflower binding meets sunflower scrap.  💛

But I had too much flap past my stitching line in the back, if that makes sense.  Here's a look at the back:


And yet, it got the job DONE!!!  Take a gander:


As you can see by the Pickle, I had some help in the Studio.

Here's the back:


It feels good to have another old project DONE!

Thanks for reading!
