Listing My Favorite Quilt


When I started making this quilt, I was making it to sell. But as I began choosing strips of fabric, I fell in love with pretty much each piece. And I decided to keep it. So I continued adding strips cutting a few here and there to break up the lines. I also added little 2 1/2” squares of green to add a subtle pop of color. And I used several shades of green to make the double fold French binding.

I quilted it on my Juki TL 2000 QI using a walking foot. 

For the back, I chose a brown plaid that I’d saved several years ago.

Can you choose a favorite fabric? I can’t!

My photos loaded out of order but I uploaded so many, I didn’t want to reload everything. I figured I’d just talk about them as I came to them.

You can see how I used a design wall to arrange and rearrange everything before I sewed it together.

Here is a closeup of the binding... I love hand stitching the binding! 

And once the quilt is washed... oh, I love the crinkly, wrinkled look!

I ended up leaving it in the stack of quilts that were for sale, but I never listed it. So, this week, I will be listing several quilts I have made.

My husband has been off work a few months and had back surgery in April. He’s still recuperating and it will be a while before he can go back to work. I decided to get back to working more and selling more of my handmade items.
