A first ... the first time that I've made a quilt for me! I've made one for "us", and John even got one for his birthday, but I've never made one just for me.
This is a special one, as I mentioned here, it pulls together many scraps from the 39 quilts that I have made since I started quilting in May 2009.
I quilted it with an overall meandering pattern ... but fairly tight ... I love how the tight quilting works on the white (sateen from JoAnns), particularly when washed and dried on hot. The quilt REALLY shrunk, it started at 57" x 62" and ended up at 52" x 58". The binding is also pieced from scraps as is the piecing on the back.
I had some fun photographing this one in the setting sun out at the cabin tonight ... so bear with me as I share ...
Have a great weekend! Sounds like it's going to be fairly good weather across the US ;-).
