Finish It Up Friday ~ Southwest Star

Put a fork in it! I finally put my big girl panties on and quilted this.

And I’m so glad I did. Prepare for photo overload.

I did some work on the long arm and Harry is back to his old self.

I’m glad I went with a solid for the back.

Hand stitched bindings still look the best.

I took the time to mark guidelines for my feathers using a blue washout pen. These photos were taken before washing the quilt. I do try to remove the marks as I go, but you can likely see a few spots here and there.

There are things I’d do differently next time, but overall, I’m quite pleased with this. It is about 48” square.

Have a great day!
