Final finishes for 2016..........

I will post the three finishes in the order that I put the bindings on.  This Stonehenge fabric quilt goes by more than one name.  It is a pattern that is sold but the directions were also in a QUILT magazine with the same exact size pieces but with a different name.  It ended up approximately 62" x 80" when finished.
I used the same fabric for both backing and binding.  I'm really happy with this one.  I know I need to do another pattern with the Stonehenge fabrics in 2017.







The zig zag quilt was the next one I did the binding on.  I used a back with scattered white dots for the binding.











I put a really soft flannel on the back.  It is 47" x 59".

















This last one got its binding finished at 10:30 p.m.


















I used the same backing that I put on the pink 16 patch quilt last month.  I showed the binding fabric on my post yesterday.  It is 38.5" x 56".

Instead of posting at 5 a.m. I'm going ahead and posting this just before midnight on the last day of 2016.  I will be working on a recap of 2016 to post next.  It will take awhile to make the collages of all of the finished tops and finished quilts.

Happy New Year everyone!!

Beautiful finishes Wanda! I'm working on a batik quilt now that will be a wedding present and was thinking yesterday about putting flannel on the back. Now I see your post and I definitely think I will do that! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! 🎆🎊 That's a very strong finish! My personal favorite is the zigzag because I love the use of black and white with the bright colors, but they are all three fabulous! And how wonderful to have three such great quilts finished at the same time. Congratulations.
I know I'll enjoy your year recap. And I look forward already to what you'll be up to this year.
As much as I dread what's in store for us politically, I know there'll still be lots of creative people who will continue to create and brighten my life, and I will endeavor to do the same. I will create, be nice, help others, and do good in the midst of what I fear will be a lot of sadness and pain. Hope your year will be exhuberantly colorful!
