Patchwork Punctuation is all DONE! YEAH! It was a beast to quilt on my 20 year old machine with 6" of throat space, but it is all done, bound and ready to be sent off to my nephew for Christmas. *ahem--a little late* ;) I can't wait to get my other machine back from the shop!
I spent the better part of the last three days quilting and binding it.
This is the quilting I was able to do before my machine went into the shop. I was having fun playing with FMQ for really the first time on a big quilt. But it started skipping stitches and catching.. which they are still trying to figure out.. everything else is checking out perfectly on it, but it's been FIVE weeks! Hopefully they figure it out soon. :( Anyway, I finally decided to just do straight line quilting on the rest of the quilt so it's mostly straight lines with just two or three areas of FMQ.
And then onto the binding made of all of the leftover scraps.
The design is something I sketched out onto graph paper last April when I was trying to figure out what to make for the AG Make it Right Challenge. I hope my nephew likes it.. he's a freshman in HS this year. Hard to believe! I figure he probably likes to text his friends a lot so hopefully this one suits him. :)
Today wasn't the best day to take pics outside.. :/ The back is green polka dot..
It's about 84 x 84". And now it's all bundled up and ready to be boxed and mailed. Whew! Glad to have that one all done!
Oh, and someone else wanted me to send a New Year message to anyone who might happen by. :)
P.S. Thanks to Jeifner for commenting and telling me about this.. hehe
