Finish!

My wild and crazy disappearing nine-patch is finished!  Well, still needing a label, which I'll pick up tomorrow when I get to our quilt ministry meeting.

This one is completely machine quilted, mostly in the Jesters Hat motif, with a single line of serpentine stitch in the first blue border.  It finishes at about 67x80 inches.

The back, where the quilting is a bit more visible:

And its indoor 'glamour' shot, since we've had rain for the past several days, and just too gloomy for outside photography.

Such a good feeling to (finally) have a finish under my belt after what seems a long dry spell!  This quilt is headed for the church camp benefit auction over Labor Day weekend.  More to come, soon I hope!

  7. It is beautiful, both front and back:) I'm sure it will fetch a good price at the auction and help with the church camp. Your talent is incredibly marvelous . . . praise God . . . He blesses us all with talents of one kind or another. You certainly shine in yours.
    Have a sweet weekend.

  8. I would have such a hard time deciding which side to use as the top truly! Both are beautiful, but I think the backing just because the texture of the quilting shows so much too. You did well, and it's such a gift of the heart to give it up for auction. Blessings to you, and no need to answer this comment. ;-)

  9. It's so bright and fun!! Love the back and the quilting! BTW, I received the book on folding fabrics and it looks very interesting. I'm looking forward to trying something. Some of them look pretty hard, so I'll try an easier one first. Thanks so much!!
