TGIFF: The Music Quilt Is Done!

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!

The rows almost finished and up on my design wall. Yay!

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!   

Fighting the bulk of the quilt was my greatest challenge, but I got it done in one day.  Here’s the final result and it’s label! 



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!
