solids. done.

Phew! I'm done with the solids quilt. After marathon binding that puppy, I finished it up this afternoon. (As I was finishing, I had to put up with the commentary of an eleven-year-old who found it crazy talk that I could possibly enjoy quilting. I wanted to tell him that throwing a frisbee around didn't give me chills of pleasure, personally, but I wasn't dissing his hobby, now was I? I remembered just in time that I am much older than he is and should act my age. Phew! Age prevailed!)

But you didn't come here to talk about that eleven-year-old. You came here to talk quilts! Or see photos, anyhow.

Ta da!

I used a gray and white herringbone fabric for the back after deciding that the batik I'd originally picked out wasn't going to do the trick.

You can see the quilting a little clearer in this picture. I quilted chevrons across the squares because I think chevrons are fierce.

This was my first quilt using continuous binding, and I used leftover fabric from the quilt top for the binding. I really like the look of it!

Now to wash and sew on the "from" tag and deliver it! Pending, of course, that the stain on the front comes out.


  1. I love how the quilt came out! The chevrons are, to use quilting lingo, totally boss. ;)

    I had a remember-your-age encounter with a kid today. He honked his bike horn, expecting me to move when he could just pedal around me, and I did NOT call him a boogerface. So proud.

    I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed about the stain! Work your magic, Mr. Audrey's Mama!

  2. Yay! I'm glad you like it! Thanks!

    Dude! What is with youth these days? Do they learn no manners?

  3. Love the look of this, the colours and the style- it really pops! Ange x


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
