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.
That turned out fantastic! I love Dresden Plates and you have used them in an interesting way. The quilting is great too!
Your Dresden plate quilt is darling. And it is finished! Whoop whoop!
I heart dresdens. What a lovely finish. I loved Lynn's version of your quilt. :o)
