WOW this was alot of quilting!


I finished quilting my quilt along quilt! For my second attempt at machine quilting I feel pretty good about it, it's not perfect, but it works! Okay I just looked at the time and I stayed up way too late finishing it. I'm going to get the binding made so that I can finish it while I am sitting at the Farmer's Market on Saturday. Can you see the cute vintage sheet backing peeking out at the bottom?
I am in love with this quilt!

Awesome!! I'm still waffling on quilting mine myself. I've not really done free motion before. Was it really hard? Or did it just take a long time.

Wow, that looks AWESOME!!! Love the backing - that's really a sheet?? It's perfect. You have made a beautiful quilt!

This quilt is inspiring! I love the colors and patterns of the fabrics, everything! This is the kind of effect I was going for and completely botched by using FQ's instead of 1/2 yard cuts, it was TOO busy. This one of yours is perfect! Love it.

It's gorgeous. I still haven't picked out the backing fabric for mine. You won't believe it until you do it but something about the third time machine quilting, it really clicks. My quilt-along will be the fourth so I'm really hoping it's not a fluke!

I am waffling too. I made a runner out of the extra and was practicing on it first. I need to just dive in.
Awesome job.
