Done!!

It's taken me a lot of weekends, but the new bed quilt is finally finished!  It's a big one, close to 90" square:



The binding features a faux piping that I learned at a VMQG meeting a while back:


I wasn't confident enough about my FMQ skills to use a more visible thread on the border, but I like how it came out:


Now what do I do?  Cheers!

8/2: Technically, this isn't a WIP, but I'm still posting to WIP Wednesday on The Needle and Thread Network.  Gotta show off!

  2. Thanks! I hadn't FMQ'd in so long that I thought the border was going to be terrible, but the quilting went a lot more smoothly and easily than I had imagined. I'll definitely be braver next time!

    1. Thanks, Janet! I'll bring the quilt to the next VMQG meeting, so maybe you'll see it in person?
