Finish it up Friday

I finished the 16 patch last night! Prepare for lots of pictures and very few words. I’m tired today! Here goes.







This quilt passed the snuggle test and eagle eye of my little Quilt Inspector.




A few details: I used Cool Grey Glide thread, hobbs 80/20 batting, backing is from Ikea, just over 200,000 stitches. The borders are freehand feathers. I chalked the spine to get started. The quilting in the blocks is all freehand continuous curves. It has not yet been washed.

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Crazy Mom Quilts, and Richard and Tanya Quilts. Also linking up with Sew Can She for Show Off Saturday.

    I just love the pics of your little man! Soooo cute! I’ll have you know I laid awake in bed this morning thinking about your freehand continuous curves. I’m not at all sure I can do it but I sure love the look.

    I love the quilting. Nice job and the backing is really cool. I will need more practice to do the freehand feathers as nice as you. I’m inspired to practice more.

    Pretty, and with lovely quilting. Ypu should be very proud of this one.

  12. Really like the modern take on the feathers and you needn’t have worried about the curves on the squares – it all looks just great! The ‘quality control’ test looks very thorough too!
