Finish It Up Friday ~ Jack in the Box

It’s done! My third hand quilting finish of the year, outside of a few minis. The first few pics are before washing.

You may be able to see the blue washout pen markings.

Gotta love that texture!

After I was done with the binding, I threw this in the washer for a short cycle on cold without detergent. I wanted to make sure all the blue pen was rinsed out. Then I added some towels that needed washing and ran the washer again, thus time with detergent. As I was quilting, I decided that the fabrics in this top were strong enough to stand up to that. And here it is!

I didn’t notice until after washing that this block had two different ginghams in it.

Plain muslin for the backing and a vintage cadet blue for the binding.

It feels as good as it looks.

I’m using this one on the couch in the evenings. I used Quilters Dream batting and it is so cozy!

Before I go, I wanted to let you know about another Accuquilt Launch Party coming up on Tuesday. They always have great giveaways for attendees in addition to great info and special deals. Click here to register.

  6. What a fantastic quilt! This is such a dynamic pattern, just with half square triangles, so creative and graphic. What a great accomplishment to have hand quilted it. The texture is great. I love that you used muslin backing – very vintage feeling. Congratulations on a beautiful finish.
