and it's finished!

Wednesday, June 6, 2007

I finished the quilting, binding, washing, and drying of my any way you slice it quilt tonight. It feels to have another thing crossed off my list!

I've decided to rename this quilt my new "80s quilt" as the neon rainbow colors remind me of all those rad outfits I used to wear! It doesn't really match anything in our house, so I'm pretty sure we'll be using this for picnics and outdoor concerts this summer. Can't wait to check out the DSO at Meadowbrook soon!

all nice and crinkled!

That should give you a good idea of the final project...from evey angle : )


  1. Very nice. I like everything about your quilt! I especially like it that a cute orange kitty has graced the top of your quilt.

  2. Your quilt turned out fabulous! I love it when people aren't afraid to use a little color. :) Did you do the quilting on your Janome?
    And Nuku does an amazing job as a quilt model. :)

  3. I normally wouldn't think I'd like all that color, but man, that hero shot, did me in. I really like it, especially when it's all nice and crinkly like that!

  4. I love the quilt and was wondering, what brand of fabric (solids) do you use? And are you happy with the quality? I'm having a difficult time finding solids (other than hand dyed) that I'm happy with the feel.
    Thanks - it's beautiful!!

  5. Fantastic! Should be in a museum! Honestly! You are so fortunate to have such talent and along with an eye for color! Was this your own pattern?
