Finished

I finished the snowflake quilt.    I still need to steam it and block it to get it nice and flat and square.

I did the binding with a narrow matching fabric.   I had planned to do prairie points but the fabric I was planning to use, assorted blue and white Christmas prints, had a lot of white that was a brighter white than the top and made it look dirty.    I cut the binding strips at 1.5 inches and folded in half , machine stitched to the front and folded to the back and hand stitched.

 

I started it here https://timquilts.com/2014/08/06/snowflakes-in-august-and-updates/

here is the start of quilting https://timquilts.com/2014/08/11/big-and-small/  and another  https://timquilts.com/2014/08/14/take-my-picture/

here is a post of the progress  https://timquilts.com/2014/08/20/deer-quilting/   and here https://timquilts.com/2014/08/27/more-hand-quilting-2/

Here it is finished …it is 41 inches square

I think I will take a day off from hand quilting now 🙂

I plan to work on a pattern for it this week

Happy Quilting

Tim

    It’s just the most joyful, exquisite, refined and downright beautiful piece of work, and while you may be a bit fed up with speed quilting these last few days, I can tell you it has been so worth it for the sheer loveliness of the result. Good luck with the entry, and if it doesn’t run away with a load of ribbons, they’re a bunch of brainless morons!

    A-ma-zing. I love it. I just do. Well, the first words that came to my mind were, of course, in my native language: ¡Madre mía!
    And what does Teddy say? I bet he is happy and proud of you.
    I am, too.

    Tim, it’s fantastic, and I’m actually glad you didn’t use prairie points. I think the way you applied the binding is perfect for the quilt. It’s gorgeous!

      thanks Caron, I was actually pretty bummed that the points didn’t work out but I do like the finished look and I have already decided on another project for that fabric….now I just need to find time before Christmas
