FO: Home is where the heart is

As promised, I was able to get my Moda Blockhead top quilted on Saturday. That evening, I finished up the binding and voila!

I give you the finished quilt! As you can see, it’s a very busy quilt. There’s a lot going on in all those blocks.

Some of them I really love (like those birds!!!). Others are pretty meh, but overall I think they come together to make a pretty decent quilt.

For backing, I kept it simple – a nice white-on-cream paisley pattern. I picked it up at the same time I bought the back for Royal Stars. And as you can see, I had enough leftover from the back of that quilt to bind it all!

And while I am carrying on with blockheads in different fabric (as you saw on Monday, I’m happy to have the bulk of them out of the way. I don’t think I’ll join another year-long KAL. I need a little more instant gratification that that!

  1. Okay Val. Can you tell us:
    -how long from start to finish for a quilt
    -its a multistep process but how many steps are there in your mind
    -Is Applique easy? I wish I could do just that.
    -what are the costs of a quilt that you make
    -if you sold them, what would you charge?


  2. Val, that is one gorgeous quilt. Those aren’t “my” colors, but I really, really like this one. The border and binding pull it together perfectly. I like samplers, both in quilts and cross-stitch and think this quilt is perfect. I wish I had your eye for color.

    What a fantastic quilt!!! There is so much to see with the various blocks but it doesn’t look busy or disconnected. The fabrics all play together very well and your sashing choice was perfect.
