Finish It Up ~ Kite Quilt

Problems not withstanding, I made it through and finished this little quilt.

I love the design and it reminds me of a small quilt I had when I was very small. It was the only quilt I ever had until I was married.

My little quilt was made of simple squares with a pink border, but it had similar prints. And it had polka dots! This backing fabric is a bit shiny and slick, much like an old blanket binding.

The photos above were taken before washing and the rest, after. It crinkled up, but not enough to hide my poor quilting job. Look away now if you are squeamish!

Yeah, not good. If you missed it, you can read about my quilting woes here.

Far from perfect, I still love this little bit.

Have a great day!

    Love this! Really captures that vintage vibe. Both the stripes and the backing really work well. Lucky is the baby that gets this one!

    I love your quilt and feel your pain about the quilting. Your choice of the stripe sets off the “kites” perfectly. I have a Gammill and am eagerly awaiting the BF pattern boards. I am guessing I would have the same problem with the particular design boards you used here. If I order other patterns I will need to study the design before buying. So I appreciate your “heads up” about your challenges.

    I like the movement in this quilt: the greens to the right ,the flowers all to the left. And at last the stripes. A pleasant quilt!
