Garden Party Finish

By June 28, 2013March 31st, 2020Blog

This little quilt has been sitting on the clothes line for quite some time.  I ran out of sashing material.  The blocks sat in a plastic Ziploc while I looked for more sashing.  I never found an exact match so I got a close second.  Instead of putting it together then I put the binding in the bag and let them hangout together.  

In March I pulled them out and got busy it didn’t take long to finish the top.  Then back on the clothes line, just not for as long.  Last week I sandwiched and quilted it.  I echoed the flowers and repeated the look in the sashing blocks.  Bound it with a thin binding, case I was about to run out of fabric again.  Don’t know how long it would have remained a UFO if I hadn’t opted for the skinny binding.  Fortunately I squeezed in just enough strips and it is finally a finish.

I’m linking up with Sarah to give it a well deserved Whoop Whoop. 

Also a big Whoop Whoop to Lynn.  Lynn helped me test my Mountain Retreat pattern.  She did a wonderful job.  Check out her yummy rendition, (she used gummy bear fabric)here.

    What a beautiful quilt! Those flowers are gorgeous. I love your background fabric here and I like the skinny binding, it's a nice contrast to the wider sashing. Really love the quilting in the triangle blocks.
