At the beginning of the summer I finished up my churndash quilt that I was working on awhile ago. It was a project that kept me sane while we were moving….I swear sewing is sometimes the best stress-reliever I have 😉
And I absolutely ADORE the quilting that Melissa did on it. And the back…..well, another coin row with all the front fabrics to extend the tan fabric. I used it for the sashing and the back and I love that it kind of mimics the look of linen.
Two thoughts about this quit…..some of the points of my outside blocks got cut off. I don’t know if I measured wrong but I didn’t have quite 1/4 inch seam allowances on the outside of the blocks. I still can’t figure it out, but next time I attempt one I will put some more thought into the mathematics of why it didn’t work out.
And two, I am still questioning my use of dark grey. I think it detracts a bit…..but again, live and learn. And hopefully while cuddling on the couch with it I won’t be too bugged by the contrast of the dark gray.
I do have to give a shout out to Clover Wonder Clips, 50 Per Pack (affiliate link) because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them for binding. Really and truly. They hold so well and I am not constantly poking myself with pins like I used to. I know they are a bit pricey (I am so cheap) but I promise these are really worth it. They work like a charm.
And one more full shot for good measure! I have a few more quilting projects that I have been working on this summer….show you soon. Any quilting going on at your house?
