The binding is done and the quilt is ready. So good to have another finish!

Here it is blowing in the wind.

And while the sun was shining, here is the back, too.

I am very pleased with the decision to use the strong contrast of black and white with these bright colours.

It has been quilted with a strong straight line geometric pattern. (Somehow I couldn’t see swirls on this one.)

I selected a soft grey for the quilting cotton so it wasn’t too severe against either the black or white fabrics. And it worked well with the colours. Here’s a close up.

A simple black and white combo has been used for the backing and then the binding was black also.

Just to re-cap, this pattern is from Elizabeth Hartman’s book, The Practical Guide To Patchwork.

I am already making another pattern from this book and have a third planned.

I hope your week is going well.

    Hi Karen,
    That is one mighty fine quilt and another great finish. Love the black and white, certainly brings out all the colours nicely. Good choice on the straight line quilting too.
