And, oh the finished product! When I talk about 'drive to finish' or feeling excited, it's anticipating holding the finished quilt that sparks those feelings. The soft, warm weight of a quilt complete, the quilting design, the subtle romance of the binding...it's poetry in stitches, really.
So here is my latest completion I would like to share. I was calling it "The Sleepy Morning Farmhouse Quilt" but the bright reds and yellows lend me to believe a jazzier name is in order. How about "Sunny Morning Farmhouse Quilt?" Yes, that's it. This quilt is a Double Irish Chain design. I used a soft baby blue novelty fabric with a country design for the centered squares and slim boarder. The Irish Chain is built of bright red and yellow. The sashing is Natural Unbleached Cotton, which (I hope) contrasts the bright fabrics and gives an old fashioned feel. The binding is bright red, same as the chain. Now put your sunglasses on!
|Bright huh? Certainly more sunny than sleepy.|
Beautiful prose, with a 3.0 stitch length.
Happy Quilting Everyone!
I linked up with AmandaJean and Finish it up Friday!
