Last week I actually managed to finish something which has been somewhat of a rarity around here this year. Back here and here I showed you the version of Jacob's Coat I was working on. Finally it is done and hanging on the wall!
It's not perfect - you are not allowed to look too closely at the points in the middle of the circles! Hey don't purposely look now that I mentioned it!
This is a quilt for which I use the famous quilters' saying, "If you can't see it from a galloping horse then don't worry about it"!
If you look at the back, you can see how I quilted the appliques - I just followed the basic petal shape, then outline quilted the rest.
I chose to paint the frame a fun bright green, and it couldn't have all come together more easily.I highly recommend using these frames for when you feel like a different way to display your quilts. It eliminates the need for binding - just some elastic on the raw edge helps keep the quilt in check...
I noticed once I put this latest quilt up, that I am running out of wall space for quilts in my living room!
Must be time to start on our bedroom...
