Finished strip quilt

I finished hand quilting the strip quilt.   I began the piecing in November

After the top was finished I set it aside to work on other quilts and I didn’t start the quilting until March 16.

Here is the post about the start of quilting

Here it is with the quilting finished.


After the quilting is finished I trim off the extra batting and backing.


And add the binding


And as always I wash the finished quilt and dry it.


Here is a close up of the quilting


And here are more pictures of the progress along the way (click pictures to enlarge)

Teddy approves.


Happy Quilting

    Hi, Tim! I just discovered your work, no talent, today. What a treat! I am a quilter, but nothing even close to what you do. I really enjoy looking at your projects.I wish you lived closer. You would be a wonderful program for our quilt guild. But, I’m in Minnesota. However, I am definitely planning to pass your website address on to other quilters. Thanks again for sharing your talent.

    Lovely work!! Your work was a real pleasure to see, as I have a migraine. Took my mine off that nagging pain for a bit. So thank you!!

    Oh, I just love this one. Makes me feel warm and happy just looking at it. One happy little quilt — it’s in that rare and treasured genre. And Andrew will want to know, “How big is it?”

    It’d beautiful Tim. I especially like your border the way you did the solid then the print and the wide solid out side border. And, I like the simple quilting on the borders. It’s just a marvelous piece of work. You did well.
    Teddy seems to agree😊. Take a break before you start on another in your stack☺

    The quilt of course is stunning! But the more I actually look at this quilt the more it seems unique. You have done a great FAST job on this creation. Well Done!
