Finished - Finally!

This took much longer to finish than I planned.

Bohemian Stripe

My Bohemian Stripe is done! It isn't perfect, but done is better than perfect. Below is a close-up shot of the back. You can see the chevron quilting pattern better on the back.

Quilting detail from the back

I used wool batting. It measures about 60" by 74". As you can see, I did use the original pieced section on the back.

Back
I bought all my LQS had left of my favorite print and used it on the top portion of the back. The bottom part of the back you can't really see in the photo above is the rest of the width of fabric stripes I cut for the top portion used on the front. The binding is made from two of the brown prints. The two I had enough of left over.

This one will live at my house. My husband complained some time ago that neither of the sofa quilts we have in our living room are long enough to cover him well. This one is plenty long enough!

I love how this quilt turned out. The quilting on it is fantastic. I can see why this one will stay with you. Your husband will be happy too. I just checked this morning and I need to make some longer and wider quilts myself.

This project has turned so wonderfully! The chevron quilting is lovely, and the back is as beautiful as the front. I'm sure your husband will be grateful.

That's a long quilt alright! :-) Great job! I must say, your quilting on it is amazing. You should be really proud of yourself! And it's reversible! The back is as awesome as the front. You guys will love having that cuddly wool-lined quilt on your couch! Well done!

Beautiful quilting Lynn! I just bought a Babylock Tiara today but won't get it for a few days. That gives me time to clean and organize my sewing room before it gets here. Thanks again for taking time to respond to my questions about you Sweet 16. Can't wait to start practicing on my new Baby!
