“Windows” quilt finished!

Is it just me, or when you are putting the binding onto your quilt, do you feel like there are five corners instead of four?? 🙂

So finally, it is finished. I am so pleased with this quilt that I can’t bear to send it away in the post today! I’m going to hang onto it over the weekend and show it off to my parents, when they come to stay. Too snuggly!

I decided to quilt this one by outlining each “window” in a slightly wonky way. Just straight lines on top of the sashing, in navy thread. The binding is so soft! I tried a flannelette plaid, and it worked out really well. 🙂

You may be interested in where I sourced my fabrics  for this quilt (and other projects). The backing is a curtain panel I picked up on the kerbside, during a council cleanup. I think it works so much better as a quilt back for a young boy, don’t you?

I have also posted a tutorial on how I pieced this quilt top. A good project for a beginner quilt. 🙂

I went a bit crazy taking pictures outside, so prepare for a photo fiesta!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts. 🙂

  1. Only five corners? Sometimes I think there are at least a dozen!!! Love your quilt. Why can’t I find things like that backing on the side of the road?!!!

    1. I must admit, that was one of my luckier finds!

      Thank you for your kind comment! I am washing the quilt right now, having had enough snuggles with it over the weekend. Going to have to post it soon!

I really love to hear your thoughts, so please leave a comment! :)
