I finished a quilt! Huzzah! This is the first one that I have finished since February.
Our neighbors gave us a beautiful canvas picture of a peachy-colored rose. It is a beautiful picture that my neighbor had photographed himself, and then he had it mounted on canvas. It’s lovely. However, it didn’t match anything else in the living room. I sewed this quilt so that they would match each other.
I found the pattern for the quilt blocks here. The piecing took the longest amount of time. I also put piping around the edge, before the binding. I love how it looks, but that also took a lot of time. The quilting was actually the easiest part; I “stitched in the ditch” between the cream and orange sections, and it was easy peasy.
P.S. Here’s an outtake from my photo shoot. I took these pictures in our small conference room at work. I didn’t realize how close the chairs were (aka I can’t crop them out). Although it’s kind of a blooper, this photo delights me.
Happy Friday! Please share what you’ve been creating in the comments. I love to see what everyone else is making!
