Last one of the year


 
   I found this photos of my Bow Tie blocks in my photos album from April.  April?  Nine months ago......let's just say before the stuff that happened.  
    I found the top  earlier this month on a hanger, awaiting its turn under the needle.   My goal for the month for this was to get it pinned and quilted.  And yesterday, it got binding done too!









   Bow-quet of Florals got bound yesterday.  I love a finish:)   I quilted it with open swirls, edge to edge.









   I am not sure if I showed this label yet.  I did this one a little differently.  Once the word part was printed off onto treated fabric, I simply added scraps to either side.  Rather than turn the edges under and hand stitch, I used muslin as a backing.   I sewed around all 4 sides and then slit the muslin to turn the label right side out.   Then I top stitched it onto the back.



  Time to shoot a few outside photos.  Please ignore my weeds.
 





Size is 48'' by 66'' ----perfect lap size to enjoy.











The Ultimate Color Combinations Cheat Sheet  To share:
    I ran across a really good, really simple color combination cheat sheet.     I know I hated the color wheel lessons, too. But they are soooo important!    I actually printed off the long list of color combos to keep handy.  You know, in case I have a no idea in mind day and need a color scheme.  Check it out.
  So the count down is near, as the new year arrives.  I am glad to get back to the usual routine again.  Happy stitching.

  4. Oh, it is really lovely! Such a simple design, but a powerful color study. Makes me want to make one. Great finish! My daughter bought me a display stand to hang my quilts and photograph them. Can't wait to get it out of the bag and use it. I can take it outside or use it inside. It folds up into a sack.

  7. Pretty and classic! How nice to have a finish right at the end of the year, too. I'm hoping to get my machine set back up today so I can fit in a few stitches before this year is finally over...

    Here's hoping 2017 will surprise us with good things!

  8. That's such a soft, pretty quilt. Your label is very eye-catching & lovely. I'll check out that color combination cheat sheet. Selecting colors are my hardest part about making a quilt.

  10. I made a bow tie quilt for my inlaws, shortly after I learned how to quilt. Maybe I'll make another one, one day.
