The Fourth is Finished!

My fourth charity quilt is finished.  Yeah.  Even showed it to the Sewdality members. I got to practice as I quilted this one.  This follow the design as you quilt it is good practice for making even stitches as one moves over the top, especially as one goes around curves.  I tried to have the least stops possible, too.  I used  a stencil and chalk for the border.  All of the fabric for this one, except the binding was donated to St. Ann's for charity quilts.

Now the back had some scraps from my stash so I got to report those in my stash report this week.  I wasn't that happy with the back - I added three pieces I dug around in my basket of scraps and found that matched the Japanese fabric, but what I didn't like afterwards were the pink strips - felt they should have extended all the way to the edges by adding the dark blue first and then adding the pink.  Oh well, it is a practice piece.

Be sure to go over to my left sidebar and click on Quilt Story's Fabric Tuesday to see what others are working on. Enjoy!

really pretty
and if you are serious about the pink, could you applique sections of pink to the edge overtop of the blue and then quilt those squares with the same border pattern?
