Finished my Patchwork Quilt

I finished! Finally. It’s kind of a big deal for me to actually finish a quilt. I’m great about starting, not so great about finishing.

I posted about it here and I used it to make a few binding tutorials. It was super easy and very quick to make. I just procrastinated with the binding, as usual. I did, however, machine stitch the binding rather than handstitch for the first time. It went much, much faster of course, but I don’t think it looks quite as nice. I learned some things that I’ll do differently next time. So, hopefully with practice I’ll get better.

I used a vintage sheet for the backing, also a first for me. All in all, I’m excited about finishing another quilt and am ready to keep working on the other two I’ve got going.

ETA: The finished size is ~ 46 X 55 and if you’re interested in making one, I have some instructions here.

Happy Quilting! 🙂
