As I mentioned in my last post, I finished quilting my Scrappy Trip top last weekend! Yay! This top was my August goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes over at Fiber of all sorts and Bittersweet Designs so here's to a nice big checkmark.
In my goal setting post, I said I didn't like this top and was probably going to be giving it to charity. Well, I'm still giving it away, but I like it a lot better now that it's quilted and done. :-)
I used 20 blocks for this quilt and it finishes at around 50" x 60". A really nice size for a lap quilt.
You can't really tell from the pictures, but I used a green variegated thread for the quilting and quilted a design I learned in Angela Walters' Machine Quilting Negative Space Craftsy class - the flower design. I love it. Super easy to do and it gives the quilt a fabulous texture.
I made the binding with a lime green solid and I think it frames the quilt perfectly.
Linking up at AmandaJean's for Finish It Up Friday and at Amy's who is hosting the TGIFF linky this week. I will also be linking up for a LYOF at the end of the month (link in my sidebar).
Have a great weekend everyone!
