Finish It Up Friday ~ Sawtooth Crib Quilt

Ta daaaa!

This little bit sure has taken a long time! It doesn’t go anywhere in my house, but I couldn’t love it more.

I went with the cable border after all. My shoulder does not appreciate the ruler work on the long arm, so it took longer than expected.

The backing fabric doesn’t match all that well, but it does the job and I had it on hand.

Gotta love the texture! All photos were taken after a good soak and wash to remove the markings. I used a monofilament thread and that helped to hide my wobbles and bobbles.

As a reminder, this vintage quilt was my inspiration.

Winslow gave her approval.

And really, what else matters?

Have a great day!

    even though you don’t need it, i approve of the quilt also. i always thought that the quilts we love didn’t have to ‘go’ (from a decorative standpoint) in our homes. i know i’m not llike others. great job on the quilt tho. maybe you should give it to winslow? patti in florida

  7. What a beauty! Love it. The quilting is so beautiful. I usually use monofilament thread in the needle too. It really helps to let the quilting show without a too “thready” look.
