I am so excited to introduce to you, my completed 1600 quilt! I have entered this quilt into the Blogger's Quilt Festival 'photography' category! There is a link at the end of this post! Take a look at all the other great photographers out there!
I once again, had great fun practicing my quilting patterns on this full sized quilt.
This picture and....
....this picture were taken after washing...so much nicer. I just love the crinkly look of a freshly washed quilt!
There is nothing like binding quilts by machine! It goes so much faster.
My new Elna 720 with the built in, extra wide walking foot helps with this process!
This is the last of the three quilts that I made up at the High Sierra Retreat in September. That is why I named this quilt "Huntington Retreat!".
I enjoyed piecing the back and am please with the way it turned out. The gray fabric is a 'Pepper Cory' design for Telegraph Road Studio.
This is the 1600 quilt before I did the split and flip with sashing trick. I also wanted it bigger so.....
I added two borders!
I am a sucker for a stripped binding! All of the top fabrics are pb&j from Moda.
After washing, the finish measurements are 62x72.
If you want to learn how to make a '1600 quilt', you can click on this YouTube video! It is so much fun, and a great challenge for your next retreat or sewing day! It took me 47min. 37sec!
