I'm very happy to announce the finish of my gi-normous Swoon quilt.
Here's another view from a different angle:
It was quite a challenge, but now it's finished, I love it!
It measures 100" x 105". The FMQ was a bit of a struggle, even though the quilt was in thirds at that point. It's still not my biggest quilt. That honour goes to my DD#1's king size. That quilt is being longarmed, believe me!
The back was fun because I backed some of my QAYG blocks with the Gypsy Bandanna fabric I had left.
Then they got moved around as I changed the layout, so I had no real idea of how it would look.
I also backed some of the sashing strips that way too.
The binding is narrow, machine stitched both sides, it's a diagonal rainbow stripe that might have been waiting for this quilt. I love how it stands out from all the white.
The blocks were all straight line quilted, and then I tried out my new feathers skills on everything white more than an inch wide. There were some learning problems, but I don't think I'll be afraid to quilt this densely again. Try Angela Walters' class on Craftsy, I'm impressed!
Now, on to a few new projects!
Till next time,
