Finish It Up Friday ~ Let Freedom Ring

Here is my first finish since arriving back in Michigan.


I used a panto called Amaze Me.


I had to piece the backing.


As you can see, I didn’t attempt to match it. I’ve had this backing fabric for ages. I think it complements the top nicely.

And here are some pictures taken after washing.


Have a great day!

    Very nice! I think your backing is a perfect choice for this top too.

  2. Beautiful! I love how your backdrop has changed too. Must be good to get back to your “stash” and your longarm.

    Lovely quilt! Liked it when you were piecing it in AZ, and I’m making a QOV using this pattern and a layer cake as well. What a great backing choice.

    Nicely done! I have never been one to wash a finished quilt before gifting it or donating it. But seeing how nice this one looks I might change my mind. Do you prewash your fabrics?

  9. This is a great finish. I love the layout and the backing.
