Well, this finish came much sooner than expected! Machine quilting is much faster than hand quilting. In the end, I feel I made the right decision. I love this quilt!
I used the same fabric for binding that I used for the repairs and s plain muslin on the back.
I wanted Baptist Fans for the texture and even though this isn’t hand quilted, I still got a lot of texture going on.
The above pictures are before washing. The next one shows a side by side comparison before and after washing.
It turned out delightfully snuggly!
I was surprised to see that the blue bled through to the backing on the stitching lines. You can see it in the photo above. Doesn’t bother me a lick.
This is a queen size bed and the quilt would fit better on a full, but I love walking by and taking a peek at it! So it will stay here for now.
Even machine quilted, this turned out exactly as I had imagined. I love when that happens! Have a great day!
