A Friday Finish...I deserve a Whoop! Whoop!

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!

Great Job! I love these fabrics and the quilt. I always take before/after washing pics of my quilts because I love how different it looks! *Just so you are aware, your link on Crazy Mom Quilts is messed up and not linking back to your blog.

I really like your rendition of the 1600 quilt! Clever to split it and add borders. Well done Vicki!

Tami @ Lemon Tree Tales said...

Wow! I love the split and flip technique you did with the 1600 quilt. It makes it so much more fun that the regular 1600 way. I'll have to remember that the next time I make one. Oh and I like your blog background print. ;-)

Carla said...

Well, isn't that the most clever thing!!

Great quilt and photos! I love to bind by machine, too. So much quicker than by hand and looks just as nice.

Sarcastic Quilter said...

I would never have thought to break up the 1600 quilt like this and I think it's brilliant! Pretty quilt.

Jo said...

Great design on the back
Well done

Nancy said...

I like that little splash of color on the back with the strips.

Valerie Reynolds said...

See that piecing totally popped on the back...nice little surprise!! LOVE IT!!!!

Marly said...

I love the way you lifted the design by splitting and flipping and then adding such a bright sashing. It really adds movement to the whole thing.

Thanks for rejuvinating this post under our jelly roll theme at Tuesday Archives Vicki!! I didn't realize it was so fast to make...sometimes it's good to have a quick pattern to "go to". Love the PB&J fabric too!!
