So enough of that. I did manage to uncover from my newly finished quilt long enough to walk to the deck and photo it. So here it is a quilt I actually made for myself! I am calling it the reversible quilt, the front is a jelly roll using the jelly roll jam II from the fat quarter shop. The back is just a layer cake all sewn together. The fabric line escapes me, but I do love all the colors. I boarded the front in linen, and that is the 1st time I have mixed fabrics and I really liked it. I quilted it in straight lines 1/2 apart. I really like how that turned out. It was bound with just a brown binding most likely Kona something. So there it is:
This is the front. I love how it all worked out and the colors. It is just fresh and crisp! It is all country colors, which we all know how country this house it :).
This is the back and I love how it looks as well.
The binding. I have gotten so much better about binding. I had put a quilt in the fair and actually won 1st place with and they picked me off about the binding so I have been practicing.
I just noticed I never told you about my fair win. First time ever enter a quilt into much of anything (I donated to a friends auction) and I got 1st place and $5.
This is the hemisphere quilt. I tested this pattern and it can be purchased here. This is the most challenging a favorite quilts I have done. I love it!
