A Finish for 2015

Yeah – My eighth finish for 2015!

042515  (1011x1024)The quilt top was finished in May 2009 and was an attempt to find a pattern for large scaled prints.  I think that my fabric choices color-wise could have been better – maybe the trading the dark purple for a medium and changing the outer border.  I wonder how it would look with pieced blocks instead of the print.

The name of the quilt pattern is Bellingrath by toadusew and the finished size is 49 1/2″ square.

I wanted some practice on a new machine quilting motif, so I used the same design on this top and the baby quilt.  Of all the different phases of making a quilt, I am the most self-critical of my machine quilting, but the only way I will improve is by practice, practice and more practice.

The baby quilt is almost finished – just need to complete the binding – so I had better get to it.
