Finish It Up Friday ~ Utility Quilt

This was a fun little experiment. It continued with the binding. I attached it by machine to the back.

And then folded to the front and used big stitches to stitch it down to the front.

Ta daaa!

I used a muslin that I knew would shrink a lot for the backing.

I love how the quilting turned out.

I washed it when it was finished. The rest of these photos show it after washing.

It is so soft.

I’m not sure what I will use this for, quite possibly it will go into the dog crate. But I’ve learned loads with this piece and had fun doing it.

Have a great day!

    I love the visual plus the texturalness of hand quilting, it is something that machine quilting can not match.

    Love your quilt. From the fabrics, the big stitch, the way you used different stitch patterns, using big stitch on the binding THE WHOLE QUILT. Please use it for small quilt for the group you are in on FB and how about using as what I calla THROW ABOUT- to enjoy looking at on coffee table, side table or anywhere it can be admired.
