Sew Fresh Quilt completed!
The Fall Leaves quilt top has been layered, basted, quilted and bound… I used the fall leaves print for the backing and for the binding. Binding… I tried the machine stitched on the back method by stitching in the ditch on the front. It is a little quicker than hand stitching, but I am not as happy with the look and will be reluctant to try it again soon, but I still have hope in mastering it.
I took the quilt out to get some pics using my daughter’s ipod. Could not see a thing on the display! And I think the direct sunlight was TOO bright. So I will try getting some better pics this week.
Here is a pic of the quilting, close up.
Black thread was used for the whole quilt – piecing, quilting and binding.
And it is the first quilt that I made using my Spoonflower quilt labels!
I also decided on the backing for the Enchantment pinwheel quilt and it is ready for layering. I was really on a roll because I also have a matching pillow ready to be quilted. I am going to attempt a free motion design, so the pillow will be my practice piece.
Meanwhile, our computer was in for repair. The USB ports were not working and I could not upload any photos. It took them two full days to get at it and get it back to us. So I did a LOT of housework and will have no guilty conscience to contend with come Monday. Glorious Monday… When the house is quiet, empty and quilty.
Hey, I do love them, but relish the time alone quilting!
