It's Friday again, and spring has fled from Middle Tennessee - but it's still time to get our whoop whoop on! Are you ready?
I'm sure you feel like you've seen this quilt in progress forever... but I'm so happy to say it's finally finished!
The pattern is To The Point by Cluck Cluck Sew.
The fabrics are a mix of Cotton & Steel, Doe, some Connecting Threads basics, and Kona snow for the background. My daughter hand picked each fabric for this quilt!
It has scrappy binding made up of the leftover bits of fabric from the triangles.
The backing is another Kona fabric, I think indigo, but I can't swear to that, along with some leftover half rectangle triangle blocks from the front. The quilting, done with white Glide, really shows up nicely on the back! I did straight line quilting 1/4 inch inside the white triangles on my tabletop machine, then loaded it onto the quilt frame to do the random meander on all the white triangles. The borders are also straight line quilted, forming a grid in each corner.
And here it is in place on Nathanael's bed! The time is getting close for him to come home - the Article 5 letter, which was the last document needed by the Chinese government before issuing the travel approval, was delivered to them Thursday morning! So we should know for sure when they will be going sometime in the next two weeks....
And another work in progress this week...
This pretty top! Next week I should be able to show it to you completely finished. I can't wait!
So - - - can I get a whoop whoop?
