A finished Imagine quilt

Woohoo! Some Masterchef on TV and a few episodes of BBC crime shows on DVD to keep my mind occupied while stitching down the binding, and it is done!!! And I looooove it!



It's a bit short to use as a bed spread, but perfect snuggle size to cover my duvet now the nights are getting colder, or keep on the sofa. A spin in the washing machine and a tumble in the dryer, and it crincled up nicely :o) However there are a few bits of paper still stuck in the quilting - arrgh!!

The backing turned out nice and scrappy, however a bit weird *lol*.



I was a bit short on fat quarters and yardage cuts from the Circle of Quilters fabric line, so I added a few bits and pieces from my stash, and I think that worked out pretty well. The puckers still annoy me a bit, but as long as no one examine it too closely...

Happy quilter here ;-D
Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida

Two of the Best of all Possible feelings: finishing a quilt then snuggling under it! Great work, Anne!! Your quilt looks so regal spread out on your bed. It's been a while since I've accomplished a total finish! I need to get crackin'!
Blessings,
Mary Lou

It turned out luscious - especially extra-luscious after the wash/dry. These colors are very pretty, the magenta with the blue. I've saved the photo as I thought it might get on my next to-do list. 8-))

Det er nydelig, lekre farger og flott quilting. Fint å få brukt noe av stofflageret til baksiden også.

Gratulerer med enda en vakker quilt! Du er jo så flink til å quilte selv :o)

I think you did a WONDERFUL job! Enjoy the snuggling under..and call it GOOD. ('cause that is what it is...GOOD!) Well done!

Shasta said...

The quilt turned out lovely. What a nice stashbuster! I think that now that you have a feel for the quilting design, you can probably recreate it on another quilt through feel without needing the paper.

Its beautiful and I like the weird backing too.

Så flott teppet ble!! Quiltingen gjør noe med et teppe, det får liksom en ny dimensjon!!

Tro det eller ei, men nå har jeg gjort ferdig en teppetopp.... kommer på bloggen i morgen, mangler bare quilting og lukkekant ;O)

Lenge siden nå, kanskje vi klarer å få til en lek-med-stoff dag snart ;O)

Ha en rikitg fin søndag i morgen!

Stor klem fra Yvonne

You did a beautiful job again, Anne Ida! Fall is just around the corner and you have a wonderful quilt to warm you up!

WOW - knallfin!
Leggene du har fått på baksiden går det helt fint å sy ned for hånd, da skjuler du dem fint (tror du jeg snakker av erfaring eller?)
