It is finished! I finally stitched that last little corner of binding, sliding me in just under the deadline for this month's round of the Celebrate Color competition: I made this quilt from a pattern I saw in the August/September issue of Quilt Magazine, but I changed the color scheme to a more fall-ish palate, because those are my favorite colors. The colors remind me of a sunset, and the divided centers reminded my mom of a wrapped gift, so together we came up with the name "Sunset Surprise" for the quilt. Here it is in completed glory, front:
|Sunset Surprise front|
|Sunset surprise back - you can see more of my quilting on this quilt here|
and with couple of other fall-colored accessories:
|Elliot comes by to inspect the goods. He'll blend right in!|
|Bat Pumpkin holders watch over my newest creation.|
In short, this one is for us and I can't wait to curl up by the fireplace under it. Finished dimensions are 50 x 70, and it is the third quilt I have assembled from start to finish, ever.
