I did it! Whoo hoo! The Music Quilt is finished and ready to be a birthday present for my youngest!
I began with a layer cake called “All Amped Up” that I got from Missouri Quilt Company. The pattern I used was from MQC’s YouTube video Double Slice Layer Cake Quilt Tutorial. This was so much fun, I’ve ordered the same layer cake to make this quilt for my hubby!
I love the backing fabric!
When it came time to actually quilt, I froze a bit. This was my first time, and I was intimidated. The hubs came to the rescue, both by inspiring me, and mapping out a simple diagonal straight stitch pattern that I could do with some confidence. He even marked the whole thing!
I originally chose a different fabric for the binding, but found it easier to trim the backing and wrap it around to the front. Katie found a tutorial about this process to help me along called Quilt Binding Without Binding.
Thanks for all of your support and love my friends! Have a wonderful weekend!
