Finish It Up Friday

My finish for today is the little Sister quilt. Here it is before washing.


And here are some after washing. 


And the back. 


 I learned that I need to use more registration marks when doing a border like this. My scallops are very uneven, but they really don’t show much on the front anyway. Usually, I prefer the look of a quilt after washing. In this case, I liked it better before. If I hadn’t washed it, my phone would still be alive as well!

This is the most intense custom quilting I have attempted. I learned so much doing this.  It was definitely worth the time involved.

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Richard and Tanya Quilts, Quilt Matters, Quilt Shop Gal

    Have you ever posted about the rulers you use/like the best. I love the work you did on this quilt. I want to get started on ruler work, but because of the expense, I want to make sure that I buy the most “useful” first.
