Finish It Up Thursday ~ A Diamond in the Rough

Finally! This little quilt took me way longer than it should have.

As a reminder, this is what it looked like before I took it apart to hand quilt it.

My quilting isn’t great, but it’s done. I like it better quilted than tied, as it was before.

Here is the back.

I had planned to hand wash this, but I was so sick of the thing, I threw it in the washer. It came out just fine!

Most of the stains came out. The worst one remains, but it is much better than it was.

Have a great day!

    with the amount of quilting and texture that you put into this quilt, we would never have known that you were sick of it if you hadn’t told. i think it is fabulous. like a silk purse from a sow’s ear (or something like that). i like the colors and the repetition of the blocks. really makes a statement now. good job!!!! patti in still cold florida

  4. It is absolutely gorgeous. I agree that the hand quilting looks much better. I have a “hand wash” setting on my washing machine I totally trust. Gotta love a washed quilt – so homey!
