I still need to write up a tutorial for this at some point, I now have 2 tutorials (maybe 3?) that I need to write up soon. But this quilt is finished, washed, photographed, and moved into its new home on our couch. I love it! This is such a different color scheme for me to work in, and I really, really like it.


It gave me so many headaches during the process, though. There was the 12″ block I quilted and didn’t like, so I picked out all the stitches. And then, I didn’t make the backing long enough. This has never, ever happened to me before. So I finished quilting and realized only the backing was showing across the bottom sliver. I had to pick out all of those stitches, which took even longer, and then sew a strip onto the bottom of the backing and requilt that one section.

It’s not totally straight across the bottom, by the time I got to this stage I just wanted it done. So, it’s a little crooked at the back bottom, but I still love it.
