In my December 12, 2106 post, I showed you a quilt Sandy and I had planned but then it was banned from her house. You can read about it here.
After finishing the top, I took it to my trusted quilter, Mrs. KB. She suggested a rolling wave pattern to soften the angles and I like it!
I am loving the green and purple contrast. It took us forever to decide on this green fabric but it’s perfect.
My go to method for tacking down quilt bindings is to use a slip stitch by hand. I have three large quilts in progress and the thought of tacking down yards of binding by hand is causing “severe procrastination syndrome”…. a common problem for me!
I decided to use my machine to tack down this binding. I watched a few on-line videos, took a deep breath, and got started. I like how this worked out and plan to use this technique again with my other two quilts in progress.
I usually give away quilts to people I love BUT I just might keep this quilt for myself!

Love the colours. That green is the perfect foil to the bright blue and purple.
Thanks, Meg! We thought so too!
OK, you can keep it, but when WMD and I arrive in July it has to be hidden! PS, the girl in question is reportedly moving back to the area…drama ensues?
OK, banned again!
Thank you! It is very feminine!
Such a fun quilt. Makes me happy to look at it.
Yes, it brings joy! Thanks!
Look at those colors! Lovely! You should keep it 🙂
Thanks T! If you insist!
