Quilt Project: Completed!!

17 May

I just finished hand sewing the binding onto my quilt, and my fingers are only slightly worse for the wear. I now get why people use thimbles! Here is the completed zig-zag quilt:

This was a huge undertaking, but I’m glad I did it. I’m also glad it is going to one of my best friends who is also a fellow crafter. I don’t know that I could make something like this for anyone who doesn’t realize how many hours of work go into it.

I didn’t buy enough of the grey fabric for the backing, and had bought the last of it at my local JoAnns, so I went with a solid navy and inserted a mini “crazy quilt” on the backing. I think it adds a little extra something to the quilt:

And it gave me a nice little spot for some embroidery to personalize it:

So that’s it!! Now to wrap it up and hopefully it will last in her family for years to come!
