Modern Monday :: A Finish

The first finish of 2015.

It was a long process to make the blocks, but so much fun especially since I was doing them with my friend Caroll who blogs for her LQS, Attic Window Quilt Shop. It was hard for me to stick with such a limited color palette but I'm glad I resisted the urges to introduce another color.

The quilting took quite a while but it was good practice. I'm pretty confident with this new-to-me design. Here are some closeups of a couple blocks so you can see the quilting better.

I purchased the backing last year and got the binding over a year ago.

I don't have a real plan for this quilt other than I plan to keep it. The finished size is 64" by 64". I'm not usually a fan of square quilts, but I am very please with this one. I'll leave you with one more full shot, minus the cat.

And if you are interested and haven't entered yet, I am having a little giveaway. Click this link to go that post. It will remain open for a few more days and is open to everyone.

Lynn, I love how your quilt turned out. It makes me want to make another one! I love the way you have quilted it! And that binding really sets it off! Great job!

It looks great, Lynn. My Modern Monday quilt is one of my favourites. I have it on my couch with me right now.

Thanks again!

It's really great, and I love the quilting! What a nice finish! I have a finish for 2015, but I haven't had time to take photos yet. Plus, it's been so d*** cold, I couldn't gather up the energy to go out and do it.
