The grass has finally turned green! It makes photographing quilts a lot easier, that’s for sure! You’ve seen this quilt recently, as I posted about it when it returned from being quilted by Rachel of Stitched in Color, but now it’s fully complete with binding on. I opted for a solid maroon colored binding to give it a bit of a frame, and I’m really happy with how it’s turned out!

The backing is another Mendocino print that I love, and just look how nicely that quilting complements the quilt. I’m so happy Rachel suggested it. (Find more info on her quilting services here).

(art critic, or just a two year old who wants to be in a photo?)

It feels good to have this one finally finished! (the quilt top was finished way back in 2015!)

    When the two year old co-ordinates with the quilt and the grass OF COURSE they should be in the picture! Quilt looks lovely, and hurray for the finish.

    You and Rachel make a good team. The top is gorgeous, but that quilting manages to straddle modern but familiar.
