What a great feeling to see the completed quilt coming out of the other side of my sewing machine! Once it was complete all I had to do was wash it and hang it outside for those classic 'quilt on washing line' photos. There may be far too many photos in this blog post but I don't care, I want to show off my quilt from every angle!
Here it is -
|Wonky Squares Quilt|
|Close up of quilting lines on the front|
For the back of the quilt I chose a silver-gray coloured fabric and did 1 line of wonky squares completed with a coloured 'extra' border. I love the back!
You can see the quilting lines really clearly on the back, they really stand out on the solid parts giving a great effect.
|Classic 'quilt & cat' shot!|
|All crinkly and wonderful!<>|
I think this photo is kind of 'artsy' with the sun just shining over the top! Appropriate really since the quilt is made with 'Sunkissed' fabric! I love it -
Here is another 'classic' quilt photo - the binding from the side, all rolled up -

I can now see why people go on to make quilt after quilt, it's so satisfying seeing something you've made from scratch turn into something so beautiful (and practical!). I don't think I'll be starting another one just yet though, but hopefully I'll get the chance to make some smaller ones too so I can practice, there were a few wrinkles in this quilt that shouldn't be there, but practice will make perfect.
