Done! I’m glad these blocks didn’t sell after all! The grid quilting gives great texture. The first photos were taken before washing.
I used unbleached muslin for the backing.
Love this green for the binding, I’ll be so sad when it’s gone from my stash!
After I took these photos, I threw it in the wash.
Wa wa waaaaaa! I was very unhappy with that ruffled edge. I was about to redo the binding, but decided to try my iron trick first. That means, I ironed the quilt from the back using lots of steam.
Much better! Now, I quite love this little quilt, wonky though it may be. it has one more quirk that won’t be fixed. See that dark line on the back?
When I pieced batting scraps, I was using up bobbins. The green thread showed through. Doesn’t bother me. It isn’t exactly a ribbon winner.
The age stains in the blocks are better, but not totally gone. That’s okay too.
Have a great day!
