I usually don't like to share a finished quilt until it's truly finished, i.e. the binding is attached and stitched in place. But I'm so excited about the quilting on this quilt I decided I had to share it right now!
My local long-arm quilter, Cindy Braiwick, did the quilting on this for me. She was a little unhappy with the results, pointing out the quilting designs don't always meet closely enough along the edges of the blocks. I didn't care, I was just blown away with the design she came up with for the quilt! This started out as a quick and easy way to use up a vast amount of orange scraps and Cindy really turned it into something special. I suspect the quilting "errors" will pretty much disappear after the quilt is washed. I can't wait to get the binding completed so I can enjoy the whole package!
Speaking of unfinished projects - this chair is my latest estate sale find. My plan was to paint the chair white, make new denim cushion covers and use it at the camp. While waiting for a trip to the camp, the chair wound up here, where my husband pronounced it perfect for a reading niche. Either way, it still needs new cushion covers!
