Seeing Spots - Finished Quilt



This quilt has been quite a long time in the making. I did the quilt top back in November 2011, and started quilting it then, doing bits and pieces of the hand quilting over the following summer, but then it got put aside and not picked up for a long time.



However, I recently finished the quilting on it, and then eventually got around to getting some fabric for the binding and doing that, and now it's finally finished! Hooray!



Not much to say that hasn't already been said, but I do adore the hand quilting on this one. The matching threads on the front make a gorgeous pattern on the back!

Oh, and incase I come back to check this in the future, I chose bamboo batting for it, which is really lovely and soft, and was fine for hand quilting with,



This one has pride of place on my couch, for snuggling under when I need a little extra warmth.

  1. Great quilt. So impressive that you hand quilted it. I can't even seem to add just a little hand quilting to my quilts.

  2. Your quilt is absolutely lovely!!! And I am amazed that you quilted it by hand. I really like the look of hand quilting, but just don't have the patience for it. So, I usually do free motion quilting :)
