Allietare quilted and bound!!

Front
Back

























Another mystery done done done!! I'm not sure if this is my favorite quilt.
 I think it comes down to colour choice, I am just not into the 'fall' colours I prefer the bright ones! However, this is a gift and it will match the recipients colour palette. So that being said It is perfect! Most of my pictures are a bit dreary. It has been tough to get good natural light to get a good texture picture!

I quilted with an all over freehand of half swirls I think they kids of look like waves! And as always I quilted the recipients name, and her mans name into the quilt! (I just LOVE doing that!) I signed it and this time I also quilted the name of the quilt into it!


Casey









I did debate weather or not to scallop the edges of the quilt. I have never done this and would love to skill build, however I just didn't think it looked right with this quilt!







My signature





I had purchased most of the mustardy colours just for this quilt (again not a choice I normally use) so I used what I had left of those for a bias scrappy binding! (I did not get a good picture of that)

I am so very happy to have this finished and ready to deliver! My friend lives a bit far away and I will not see her for another two weeks, so that kind of fun will have to wait!!

  2. Your Allietaire quilt is stunning! Absolutely beautiful! I love the quilting - not too much, not too little! But the most awesome part of your post today was seeing feet in a tropical setting - I immediately felt the need to go to Expedia and see what interesting trips are available....

  4. Hello-

    I'm sorry to be off-topic, but I have a problem. Whenever I push a button named "new post" in the main Blogger room, all I get for a LONG time is the tab "loading". Eventually it goes into the proper screen, but this could be as long as 45 minutes! Have you ever had this problem, and do you have a way to fix it? My e-mail address is thoreaugreen@gmail.com.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
