Ta da! Here it is in all it's glory. So this is the front (obviously)....
.....and the back. I decided to quilt "in the ditch" along the sashing and then a cross across the middle of each block. I did this to make sure the lines were even on the front but it has worked out to be a lovely grid pattern on the back.
I'm really pleased with it, I have learned so much through making it and my general sewing has really improved, let alone the quilting techniques I've learned and practiced. Still, there is room for improvement. I didn't secure the quilt sandwich enough with pins before I started the quilting so there are a few puckers. And although my lines aren't bad, there are a few wonky places. But hey - that's what gives a quilt character, isn't it? I am most pleased with my hand sewing of the binding. I made binding using 2.5" strips of the sashing material and machine sewed it to the front. I then hand sewed it to the back.
So, WIP #3 finished!
I'll be linking up with Handmade Monday to see if anyone else has finished a big project this week. Join me there if you can.
PS I'm having a real issue with the word sewed. It is a word, isn't it? It just sounds and looks wrong!
