One WIP down

I have a sneaking suspicion that Kicking and Screaming will have the last word after all by waving its borders at me when it hangs on the wall, but for now I'll just savour the satisfaction of finally finishing it! Including all the time it spent in a box as I stewed about the latest set of setbacks, it only took about 14 months to make. :) I ordered a quilt hanger for it today, but it may take a while to arrive so I don't need to worry about the wave just yet.

Here's a look at the pringles lid quilting on the checkerboard. It isn't the full circle of the lid. I just used as much of the curve as I needed to fill the space.



I also like the way the back looks (from a distance, anyway - I'm still working on making the quilting as even and pretty on the back as on the front). I think I may have to put a whole cloth quilt on my list of quilts to make. I might get to it by 2020...

  1. Oooohhhhhhh, your quilt is beautiful! ! ! Blue is my favorite color and the blues you used are wonderful. The idea to use the Pringles lid as a guide was great. All of your quilting looks great. So far I haven't tried anything but handquilting, stitch in the ditch and outline stitching. I gotta try some new things!

  5. I too, am partial to blue, and I really like the star, and the on-point setting, and the accents in the border really top it off.
