A Big Finish!

Finally, I am done with this quilt.  I used 2 spools of 1000 yards cotton.  A huge amount of quilting!
I am really happy with how it turned out though.  This quilt is for my youngest son.  He is away at the moment but I can't wait to give him his quilt when he gets back.
The binding is made from left over blocks from the quilt.  Had to join a ton of blocks at a 45 degree angle to make a scrappy strip.  It really pops against the black border.
The corners look good too.  All in all a job well done.  A very satisfying tick on the looooong list of UFO's.  Now to pick another UFO!


  1. Congratulations!!!

  2. Well done!! Fantastic way to practise your quilting - I may have to borrow it! Bet your son will love it :-)

  3. Your quilt looks fantastic. Perfect quilting.

    Greetings, Manuela
