I have a big finish to share this week.
My double wedding ring quilt is DONE! It is even off to its new home :)
I finished up the basting in the middle of packing and working at my house.
I hated not being able to get work done on it while I was in house limbo.
It was an exciting day when my sewing machine arrived at my new house and I could begin the quilting of this beauty.
I've noticed that big projects begin to get "old" and I'm ready to start something new as I get to the end. I've found that they go smoother, quicker and more enjoyably if I pray for the recipient as I work.
My cousin chose her fabrics and I loved working with them, Strawberry Fields Revisited by Moda.
It is a large queen size which made it hard to get pictures by myself.
Most people might groan at the sight of all the inside corners I had to do with that binding but it was a good, fun challenge at the end of this project!
I used her favorite fabric from the line for the backing. My mom was astonished that I managed to do a single fabric for a backing ;) I like to get scrappy with the leftovers usually!
Hand sewing doesn't like my hands or else the other way around, so I did machine bind.
Hurray for finishes! I love how it turned out!
