On the advice of AJ Dub, I took some time to heat set the writing on the blocks before washing the quilt. Then it took a couple extra days to get this washed/dried because I was in the middle of the regular laundry day, and clean unmentionables wait for no quilt! And then it rained. And rained. And rained some more.
So after we got off the ark and back on dry land, I managed to get some pictures of the finished quilt!
It measures 72×72″ square, which is a nice couch size. I stuck with jewel tones and saturated colors to contrast with the cream of the signature areas, and I’m happy with the color combination.
Here’s what a single block looks like- 6″ finished with two corner triangles. As you can tell, I straight line quilted in the signature area, and then free motion quilted some hearts in a clover-leaf pattern where the corner triangles meet. I mirrored the 3-line straight-line quilting in the inner border, and then ye olde stipple in the HST border.
I still have to stitch the label on, but it’s tucked safely inside a pillowcase to avoid cat hair, although Jett did lay directly on the covered quilt today. Sigh. I’ll present the quilt to her next week!
