Finish It Up Friday ~ A Modern Quilt

My last big quilt for this year is done! I love the texture from the quilting.

Here it is on my guest room bed. It looks huge here!

And it was! Until I washed it. Boy, did this shrink! A whole 8 inches each way. Here’s a look after washing.

It has even more texture now.

It is a Christmas gift, but I gave it to Daughter #3 and her hubby early. She took the rest of these photos at her house.

I think it fits quite well in their mid mod house.

Have a great day!

    That’s a lot of shrinking, but it still looks plenty big. It’s a wonderful design, and I liked it on your bed with that marvelous headboard.

    Eight inch shrinkage each way, holy moly! I just love the look of that straight line quilting. Finishing off one of mine in the same style.

    This would make SO MANY ‘moderns’ over the moon. I LOVE it & am not a modern, so to speak. Maybe even ‘an ancient’! It is just so livable; I adore it & its yummy texture. 8″ BOTH ways? wowzer is that ever a lot! Merry Christmas, Susan
