I finished it in time!
I started this quilt about a week ago, and quilted and bound it on Friday just in time to gift it on Saturday. In my trend of naming quilts after songs, this one is Georgia On My Mind. It's for my grandmother, who has been ill, and her first name is Georgia. So I thought it was appropriate :-)
(I lint rolled after I took this picture!)
For the back I used the block I messed up as well as a big block made of solids that I used in my grandfather's quilt. Yes, I am going to finish that one. I'm just at a quilting inspiration standstill.
I took this quilt outside to photograph for the first time, and I really like how that came out. The grass was a little dewy, and one of the pictures is sunny and the other darker because I didn't think to wait for the cloud to pass. Live and learn!
I free motion quilted it with little sprouts that go in alternating directions, and echo quilted the gray stars for interest. I had been thinking about how to quilt this, and then saw this post on Julie's blog that SAME DAY. Perfection!
I bound it in a Denyse Schmidt print that went with it perfectly. It finished at 60x60, and I used ~30 blue prints, I think 17 pink/red prints, and about 10 gray prints. They were almost all from stash, except some of the reds, because I don't work with red very often, and don't keep it stocked.
