I finished quilting and binding this Modern Herringbone baby quilt for my neighbor. I quilted it on the diagonal about an inch apart.
It shrunk quite a bit from washing, so it now measures 36 x 42 inches.
I put an extra strip of the herringbones down the back to make it a little wider for quilting.
The two tone fabric I used for the backing really enhances the variety of violets in the quilt.
I decided to name this "Variegated Violets." This design is very scrap friendly and was very fun to make. I will probably make one again.
It is Sunday, so at my house that means NFL football and Slow Sunday Stitching. I am almost done with the fence block for my Love Blooms Here BOM. I need to add the leaves to the left side. Then I need to get the last block together. I am anxious to get the top together and start hand quilting it.
Before I can work on hand quilting the Love Blooms Here quilt, I need to hand quilt my new Christmas tree skirt. This is a UFO for the last couple of years...
I am planning on using perle cotton and chunky stitches for a primitive look.
It also will get some buttons for embellishment. To be inspired by more Slow Stitching, visit Kathy's blog here http://kathysquilts.blogspot.com
