The Quilt is Finished!

 Wah-hooooooooooooo!
It feels so good to finally be done with my first real quilt. Sat-is-FACT-ion!
It really feels good to have completed a project like this. I ended up doing a few different methods of binding (whipstitch, ladder stitch, and machine stitching) and decided that the ladder stitch looked the best (on the first attempt). The ladder stitch took some time, but I think the results were worth it. I just didn't do well with the machine stitching and the whipstitch looked messy. I didn't pull any of them out, however. So I have a very unique binding!
I was so proud of my finished product that I took it outside for a photo shoot.
Ooooo, nice. Work it. Work it.
Yes, this quilt was a challenge and diversion for myself, but my kids have, throughout the process, claimed it for themselves. And, of course, that's who it was really for to begin with.
One more time, Wah-hoo!!!
And I'm so excited to finally be linking up with Canoe Ridge Creations for Sew Modern Monday!

  4. Oh my I LOVE this quilt! Such fun fabrics. I love that your kids claimed it for their own. My son sees me at the sewing machine and the first thing out of his mouth is, "is that for me???" And it usually is:)
