While my sewing room is disassembled, I thought I'd share some beauty shots of the Framed quilt, which is now all quilted and finished:
It turned out so great! Hard to get a picture of the whole thing because it's so big! (About 87 by 103.) For those who don't know, Framed was one of my projects for last year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. It was quilted by Alycia, who did an amazing job. (Email her and maybe she'll quilt one for you too!) So much great texture on this one.
I used this batting in the summer weight, which is so soft and turned out really well. (I bought this when we were in Maine, so I don't know how easy it is to get anywhere else.) I think the thinner batting kept the quilt from getting too heavy.
This quilt has a scrappy binding, which I almost never do, but should do more often. You know how something always gets broken when you move? Well:
Yep, I broke the jar where I keep the leftover bits of binding. Nothing to do but use them, right? They're already cut and just need to be seamed together, so why not? I'm sad to tell you that I had enough binding pieces here for at least 3 quilts.
I love how this binding came out! I don't usually do the "rolled quilt" picture, but this shows off the binding really nicely. Yep, there were some short pieces in there, but I like them! And it used them up, so it's a win all around.
Framed is destined for the bed in the guest room, since it will fit and will be nice to sleep under. I confess that I spent a little time snuggled under it and can certify it as extra cozy.
As I said, the moving truck is coming! Keep your fingers crossed for us, and I'll see you soon from the new sewing room!
