Scrappy Wonky Quilt Finished

DSCN0728

I finished up the hand quilting and binding on the scrappy 1900 quilt.

I left the edges wonky rather than trying to square it up and have to cut off a lot of fabric.    My goal with this was to make it look like it was all made by the same person. I imagined how the person who made the top might do the quilting and I figured they would be as unconcerned for uniformity in the quilting as they were in the piecing so the quilting is intentionally irregular.
Here are some more pictures (click pictures to enlarge)

I made a video of how I did the binding. (Teddy makes an appearance)

And here are some more pictures of the garden today

I have made some progress on the hand quilted scrappy quilt.   The top was made in about 1900 and was not well made at all.   the seams are all variable in size and it was not flat or square.   I am quilting it in a way that will go with the top…..wonky .   I have to admit that it is not all that easy for me to be intentionally wonky but I think the result fits well with the top.

Out of the frame

DSCN0620

I decided that in order to get this quilt finished faster I needed to take it out of the frame and do the quilting in a hoop.

It is going much faster now and I will now be able to use the large floor frame for basting quilts.

Teddy wanted to have his picture taken as he does every time I have the camera out.    He doesn’t understand the concept of video….he just knows how to sit still and look good.

I did a tree book cover with just quilting

I used some Faux Leather on a few and it worked pretty well.    I think I’ll try a few with real leather at some point.

I made one for a gift so I added an initial
