Yay! I Have A Finish!

Posted on | February 19, 2022 | 14 Comments

I feel like I have been spending a lot of time preparing projects and I know this is worthwhile, but it is always good to get a finish as well.

This was an easy finish in the end. I did leave it a little while after the quilt was sandwiched, but once I started, it was a breeze.

I kept to straight line quilting through the centres of the triangles in each quarter. The picture of the backing shows that quite clearly.

And I finished it off with striped navy and white binding.

I have had the umbrella backing for a while and was glad there was enough to do this quilt.

I have managed to get all the trees together and have added a couple of borders – print fabric and a soft green. It is now waiting in the quilting queue.

That will have to wait as I need to go outside to mow. We are not used to that in February as the lawn is usually brown from the heat.

Hope all are having a lovely weekend.

Cheers, Karen

    Beautiful finish! I love the backing fabric you choose too. Your tree top looks fabulous. I can’t wait to see how you quilt it. Brown must be the color this year. Your grass is brown because of the heat, and mine because of the snow. Oh, I’m wishing for better days for us both. LOL!!

    Your latest quilt finish is lovely Karen. I particularly like the colours- quite different from the red, blue, green and yellow we normally see in these types of quilts! I’ve used that sort of quilting before. It goes quilting and is very effective! We’ve certainly had a great Summer!
