Remember the post I did in February about that country fabric that jumped in my cart? Well, the quilt is finished and although it’s not my favorite colors, it did turn out surprisingly beautiful.
The quilting, while repetitive (and after a while, quite boring!) was surprisingly simple and forgiving. I was going a bit “loopy” after a while. Bwaaa-haaa-haaa! I crack myself up sometimes. Hey – the voices in my head thought that was funny.
See how forgiving this quilting is? No matter how thick or thin I quilted those loops, it looks great. I almost like the back better than the front! The quilting enhanced this rather dull quilt and made it beautiful! Shoot, I can’t stop looking at the back. It’s almost prettier than the front.
This was great practice for me, since I did the same pattern throughout the quilt. I had planned to give it as my Girl’s Club Christmas Exchange gift, but our group decided we’d rather try becoming millionaires and had a blast scratching off eighty $1 lottery tickets instead. And won $36. No quilt machine upgrade for me, LOL! Instead, I will give it to Shirley, who I wrote about in this post. I can’t think of a better person to receive it. She has created a memory that will always make me smile. And remind me why I quilt.
I love this quilt – especially how you quilted it! It’s kind of cool how such a simple design can look so pretty. I think the loops compliment the triangles beautifully!
