First August finish................


I decided to do the binding on gray dotty all by machine.  It finished at 60.5" x 76".


















I remembered to do the fold back to show the backing on this one.
I have two and a half sides hand stitched on this quilt.  I'm into the fifth of seven different binding fabrics at this point.

I said it before, but I still admire the artistic restraint of sticking with the gray dotted fabric throughout. I really like this quilt!

And then the fractured quilt! I have never mustered the courage to use more than one fabric in a binding. Maybe someday!

Just love the gray dots with the hard edge of the zig zag. The colors are just super.

Gray dotty is such a fun quilt to look at. Congrats on your first August finish!

Gray dotty is a winner - May have been less exciting to piece, but the results are excellent. Love the dot- Play in the backing ...

Kudos and hugs!

Wow! That is wonderful! Love the colours against the grey dots, and the backing is great too! Wish I'd made it!

Since you recently posted the number of quilts you've finished on average per month, I'm curious about something. How many quilt tops do you have that are waiting to be finished?

Needled Mom said...

Beautiful! I do love the zig zags and the backing is great.

Leslie said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous quilt. Those colors just pop right off that gray!

Your rows look like they are floating above the background.

Still one of my favorites! I've been into grays lately and made a little baby quilt with a gray background - it was a solid gray, Kona Ash, but I really like the way it turned out and plan on using that again sometime soon, the Kona Ash, but not the dame pattern or the same fabric otherwise. Now I see so many more possibilities, my eyes having been opened by your use of the gray dotty! Of course, I have already bought a lot of the Kona ash, so maybe I'll stick with it for a while? We shall see!
