Mystery Quilt Finish.

Posted on | July 11, 2011 | 12 Comments

It is always lovely when the last stitch goes into the binding and a quilt is finished.  This is the mystery quilt I did in a workshop back in January.

I managed to have a few moments outside with the camera when the wind eased off, just before the rain bucketed down. It has ended up being a comfortable sized lap quilt.

I am still a novice at free motion quilting and know I have to keep practicing on each quilt. The pattern in this fabric had lots of curves and swirls which was a good guide for the quilting designs.

I did a cross between feathers and leaves in each cat then some pebbling around them.

There are loops and swirls in the black borders. I tried curves on each of the triangles and know that this is definitely something that needs a lot more work.

Lots of curves and swirls in the white and yellow borders. Hard to show as the fabric design is so busy. (It is also good for hiding hiccups!)

Also some half flowers in the corner triangles.

I had some fun with the fabric for the backing.

A combination of dogs, cats, children, pandas and spots.

All that is left to do is add the label.

Another one done!
