Finish It Up Friday

I hated not having a finish last week but I have a big one this week. My 1930’s Vintage Carpenter Wheel top is now quilted and bound and gracing my own bed! Here are a few gazillion pics.






I really tried to save the diamond border but it was just not working. I bound it using the same muslin that I used on the back and it matched the front quite well. It fits my bed really well!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have lots of Quilty finishes this week.

Linking up with Richard and Tanya Quilts, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, and Quilt Matters.

    It is beautiful! I love the quilting and how the border turned out. Doesn’t it make you think of the hands that cut and pieced it together. They would be blessed at the way it finished.

  7. What a beautiful quilt! The quilting really works- it’s pops, without taking away form the design of the blocks. And those little pops of red? LOVE!
