TGIFF: Playful Colors Quilt Done!

I started this quilt some time ago in 2014. It was a a random sewing project I just started on a boring afternoon to keep busy.

It was bright and cheerful and was making me happy just piecing the fabrics together. All the bright pops of color against the random browns and mellow greens. I didn’t know what I would end up doing with this blanket, but went with it!

As of this week, I finished! I put the last stitch into the binding Wednesday night and I couldn’t have been happier. The whole project came together beautifully and it’s such a happy quilt.

Then I took a risk and washed it. I ran it through a delicate cold wash and dried it on low just to give it some freshness. What came out of my machine is a cozy and sweet blanket that I can see myself cuddling up under when the weather turns cooler.

I love the quilted squares, they really have a rough feeling that gives the blanket texture.

It comes out as almost a perfect square and a bit smaller than a full sized quilt. It’s not quite a lap quilt so it falls somewhere in between.

The sashing also worked as my binding and I think it ties everything together so well. I didn’t love my job on the binding, I definitely think I can improve upon my hand sewing techniques. It’s definitely on my list of things to work on!

I admitted to my mom that wrapped the blanket up and taking pictures of the binding is my FAVORITE shot to take on a finished product. I can’t say why! But there is something satisfying to see my work all wrapped up and layered in such a way!
