I did it!! My Block of the Month quilt is entirely finished. And it makes me really really happy :) It all started with this lovely stack of Backyard Baby fabrics:
And here it is, quilted, bound and ready to be snuggled with.
Our series was for a year, a block each month with a theme right? Ie star, hst, pinwheel, etc.. I decided that I wanted to make my quilt a twin, so in the end I doubled the amount of squares and did 12 nine patches to make it a Chain Sampler quilt. Each square is 15" finished. It is 68" x 90".
My aunt did the quilting, this was too big for me and not even the time to consider it on my limited machine! She did wavy lines to show the chains better, stippling throughout the blocks and then each sampler block she did some great custom quilting. On all of the blocks with trees she'd follow the shape of the tree. I love how she did it!
I backed it with gray minky and the orange print seemed perfect for the binding. I actually almost wish I'd used orange in each block, or used it more.
There you have it! Soon one of my boys will have this on their new extra big boy beds. Now I'm going to lay under it and watch New Girl. I'm done for the night :)
Heather will be sharing her Block of the Month quilt finish tomorrow so check back!!
Let's see your creations!
