And here it is, quilted, bound, and currently in use by L-man.
A BIG thank-you to the women who participated in this swap with me, Sheree, Jacquie, Thimbleanna, Anna, Stacey, Lolly, Jenn, and Emily. It warms my heart to look at this quilt and see bits of fabric from each of you! Thank-you, each of you for being so generous with your scraps and the time it took to send scraps to the other women in the group. You each have a special place in my heart for sure!
Ok, for the quilting, I free motion quilted everyone's names diagonally across the tops and bottoms of the color diamonds with little flowers in between.
and then through the middle of each block, I free motion quilted lines with little loopdy doo's every once in a while.
For the binding, I used authentic by moda. I thought it went well with the theme of quilting the names, and it looks great with the backing!
Thank-you everyone for your sweet comments and encouragement while I worked on this project, they kept me going!
