Finish-A-Long Q4 – Finish Number Two

After several years, I have finally completed what I’m now calling Lone Star Explosion, a quilt I began in a class with Kimberly Einmo at the 2014 Grand Rapids AQS show. Here are a few process photos.

My final layout plan is a mixture of two of Kimberly Einmo’s suggestions. Here it is before the white borders were added.

Here it is all quilted, bound, washed and dried. The binding is a fabric from the collection (Ink Blossoms) that I found online and thought I might use as border fabric. When I tried it out, I didn’t like it, but it makes a great binding.

Here is the quilt in use for reading! It will actually probably end up on a wall somewhere, but for now…What have you been finishing?

Quilt on!
