Last Finish for 2012

Hi all,

I actually finished putting the binding on a few days ago but didn’t get to take some photos until yesterday…

My finished quilt front

This is my How For Will You Go? QAL quilt!

Quilt stats
Size – 65” x 80”
Pattern – HFWYG?QAL
Fabrics – Ruby, Flea Market Fancy and Bella Feather
Quilted by – Me! In an all over stipple

My finished quilt back

Improv stacked coin backing…I used all my left over fabric and only have small pieces left now!

My finished quilt back 2

One strip in the backing was a bit short so I slashed it and added in a block I had made from the leftover triangles. And on a couple of the other strips I made a feature of the selvages.

The ever popular roll up shot LOL

Just a little reminder - This is what is left to do for the QAL - 4th January: Binding your quilt
11th January: Link up your finished quilt.
18th January: Prize winners announced.

For links to all the tutorials go here.

And for a run through of the categories and prizes go here.

It is not too late to make something…be it a pincushion, coasters, pot holder or even a mini quilt (use your imagination) to go in the 3rd category of Small Quilted Item. You could try for a throw quilt if you have made some of the blocks and don’t think you can finish the twin size.

Enjoy the ride!

Your quilt turned out absolutely stunning. And the back is like a second quilt. Did you quilt it on your SIL's long arm quilting machine? Wow, now I really have to get going with my few blocks, if I'm going to make the dead line!!
