Hot on the heels of last week's quilt finish, I wrapped up another languishing project (started here). Remember the Swoon quilt craze? I enthusiastically jumped aboard, finished up my blocks, pieced a backing, pin basted it together and then apparently, lost all steam to finish.
|Love orange and pink together! The background fabric is Play dots in Vanilla by Aneela Hoey from her Sherbet Pips line and is one of my favourite low volume prints.|
I believe this is the longest I've had a finished top wait around to be quilted, but the finish has been worth the wait!
Before I share the full reveal of the front, I have to show how nicely the backing came together. There are two seams in the backing, can you find them?
It's always such a pleasure when pattern matching goes so well that you have to look for the seams that join the yardage to make the backing.
|The colours in this fabric were a perfect complement to the Swoon blocks!|
Once again, I went ahead with a machine binding and had good results.
|Appropriately named, the sweet stripe I used for the binding is called, "Happier" by Deena Rutter.|
This time I was able to keep my stitches even closer to disappearing on the front, thanks to trying the "stitch in the ditch" foot on my machine. It worked quite nicely!
|Machine binding went smoothly, even for the corners and although not perfect, I'm encouraged to do it again.|
Ta-da! My finally finished version of the Swoon quilt pattern by Camille Roskelley.
