Finally, a finish!

I haven’t been very productive on the quilting front lately but I did finish the Summer Breeze Picnic quilt this week from Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts and I love it!

I added ties to one end while I was sewing on the binding so that it can be rolled and tied up.  I’m happy with how compact it is while still being a nice size when spread out.

You can see my first post about this quilt here.  I was going to back it in one vintage sheet but the one I had used on the front had a lot of yellowing on it so I used what I could of it, scraps from the front, and another vintage sheet from my stash.

I quilted it in vertical organic lines with a dark sage colored thread and bound it with a green gingham from Denyse Schmidt and the same solid blue as the front.  I matched the binding seams with the quilt design for the first time and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Hopefully I’ll get to put this utilitarian quilt to good use soon!
