I have completed the first finish of my 2019 Qtr 1 Finish-A-Long Goals thanks to my friend, Roseanne, at Home Sewn By Us whom I got to know after she started commenting on my blog posts over a year ago. I’ve shared with her that I’m much more comfortable with the piecing and design aspect of quilting than the actual quilting, and one thing led to another, and on 12/31/18 I sent my Random Intention Quilt Top that I designed and made in September 2017 as part of a fat quarter contest to Roseanne to quilt it for me. And am I ever glad I did! I had a basic orange peel quilting motif in mind, and Roseanne took my idea and ran with it. And then she came up with a perfect idea for quilting the borders which I had not even thought about. Roseanne shared about quilting Random Intention in her Quilting on A Friend Going Home post. I received the quilt on Friday (Jan 25th), spent part of my weekend binding it, and was actually able to take some outside shots of it because it was a sunny day, and the New Mexico winds were hardly blowing. Below is a pic of the front of the finished 36” x 36” baby quilt.
Here is a close up of the quilting:
This is the back of the quilt:
And a close-up of the quilt label that I intentionally did not put a top border on as I often do (see my Quilt Label Tutorial) because I wanted the label to blend better with the hedgehog backing fabric.
I’m really happy with how this quilt turned out and am thinking about putting it up on my bedroom wall. Photo below just added:
