stacking the odds quilt
I finished binding the Stacking the Odds quilt the other day and am so happy with it. The piecing was finished in April and I sent the quilt off to Tillie Studio where she used a long arm and the design Knotty to quilt it for me. Amy's mom did a wonderful job. I couldn't be happier with the design I chose and the work she did. Since this is a queen size quilt I didn't think I was up for the challenge of hand quilting it though I would really like to do that some time and it's just too big for my sewing machine. I think a intricate quilting stitch is a nice touch with a modern feeling design such as this one. I talked about the fabrics here.
Now it's time to take the velvet and linen quilt off and display this pretty one. I usually am not one for boldness in color and pattern in the home so this is fun and different.
