To the Point – Finished Quilt
Work has been taking all of my time lately and along with some spring yard work and a few sewing projects (that are still under wraps at the moment), somehow that left me with no time to blog for the last few weeks… that or I just kept saying I needed to blog, but didn’t actually sit down and type out some words. With that being said, I am proud to announce I finally finished the ‘To the Point’ quilt by CluckCluckSew. I have a few more finished quilts that I can’t wait to share over the next few weeks, again that is if I can make sure I sit down and share.
I love the colors and fabric print design in this quilt. It has been fun to see it come together from the start. I wasn’t sure what to do with the quilting, so I decided to do some random single and double loops on my sit down sewing machine. I also added two unique borders (double loops in the small border and free hand flowers with connecting loops) that I also think turned out ok.
Since this quilt is for my niece, I decided to add some flair to the borders and that is where I quilted some free hand flowers. It was actually easier then I expected it to be, the Bernina, free motion quilting foot, makes this an easy process.
I am pleased with the overall layout and use of fabric choices that came together with this quilt. It was an easy quilt to piece together and Allison Harris always writes detailed patterns that make piecing the quilt tops enjoyable. I hope my niece enjoys snuggling up with this quilt as she spends countless hours reading.
I wanted the back of the quilt to be a little more ‘Girl Friendly’ so I added a grey pattern with vines and flowers and finished the quilt off with a solid color binding.
