I chose to do a facing instead of binding as I wanted as much of the final border to show. I would have preferred a 2" border, but I just didn't have enough to swing it. Any way I learned a new way to do a binding around a quilt. Used mostly in art quilts, I'm happy with it as this quilt will be a wall hanging. One WIP totally done for 2015!
And for another finish - I finished another B3 Quilt. I'm designing a 30" quilt from one block for our Neonatal Community Service each month. The pattern is free for personal use only. You can find it on the right sidebar.
I decided to quilt a big B in the center block.
How are you doing on your wips? Would love to see - doesn't have to be a finish, but we'll admire those, too. Linky below - remember it doesn't have to be a new post, just one that shows your WIP. Ends Monday, midnight. Since I finished a flower I'm linking to Amanda's Finish it Friday, Lizzie's Free Motion Mavericks and Sarah's Can I get a Whoop, Whoop? Lots of eye candy there.
Your B3 quilt is beautiful!!!! The fabrics you used are fabulous and the quilted 'B' is the perfect touch! Enjoy the weekend. :)ReplyDelete
I really like what you did. Two Boms in One is just amazing. They were meant to be together. Congrats!!ReplyDelete
always nice to get done with projects, I have the binding to get on a quilt todayReplyDelete
First time linking up and commenting. I had to enlarge the picture to see that beautiful floral background print, gorgeous fabric!ReplyDelete
Congratulations Angie on two very lovely finishes... Both quilts are sweet! Thanks for the nice little pattern too. Hope you are well. KarenReplyDelete
Beautiful quilts! Happy Friday! ~MelanieReplyDelete
I love that background fabric and how it looks with all the sampler blocks. Oh, and I love that border. And, hey, love the whole quilt. Congrats on your finish.ReplyDelete
love your quilt.ReplyDelete
The list is growing each week! The Two BOMs quilt is just lovely and will brighten any room where it hangs. Love the baby quilt, too; very clever with that B.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the finishes!ReplyDelete
Your BOM quilt is gorgeous! I really love the background print. It makes this quilt.ReplyDelete
Angie, thank you for inviting me to link up with your WIPs Be Gone. I love seeing what others are working on. Your B quilts are lovely.ReplyDelete
What a great idea, to combine both BOMs. I keep thinking of trying out that facing method - I think you were right about keeping the border clean for this.ReplyDelete
Hello Angie - How wonderful, finishing a project with blocks you have had for such a long time and at the same time trying out the shadow quilting technique! It looks great, such cheerful colours to brighten up a room.ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking up with Free Motion Mavericks!
