Finish It Up Friday ~ Puss in the Corner

It’s done! The quilting seemed to take forever, but I’m thankful to share a finished quilt with you today, instead of a finished top.

Of course, my little photo bomber showed up.

I love this stripe I used for the binding.

I used muslin on the back. I found it at Goodwill and it was two lengths already seamed together to the perfect size.

I knew the crosshatch quilting would give a fantastic texture after washing. And I was right!

How yummy is that?

All the quilting imperfections are darn near invisible now.

I was so worried that the blocks were too chunky, but I love the result. Eventually, I’ll use this for a couch quilt. But it’s decorating my railing for now so I can look up and admire it.

Thanks for following along with this project.

Have a great day!

    Thanks, Cindy! The yellow was a Paula Barnes print from one of her Companions lines. I’m so sad that it’s all gone!
