Finish It Up Friday ~ Deanna’s Favorite

I’ve decided to call this quilt, Deanna’s Favorite. I must be her favorite, since she gave me this gorgeous top!

I love this kind of quilting. I enjoy doing it, and I love the results.

Sigh… lovely.

After I took the photos above, I gently washed it in the bathtub. I expected the claret red to run.

It turned the cream backing into the palest of pinks, but surprisingly, the fabrics in the blocks were unaffected. Washing and drying took the texture up a notch.

This last picture was actually two photos stitched together. The left half shows before washing, and the right half after.

This is such a satisfying finish! Thank you, dear Deanna, for your generosity.

Have a great day, everyone!
