WOO-HOO! As hoped, I was able to finish quilting the OC today. Final dimensions are 68"x76". Perfect for a twin bed, OR as a wonderful couch snuggler (which is what it will most likely get used for up at the farm).
The quilting is a simple non-thinking meander and was finished lightening-quick. I used a swirvy-back-n-forth in the borders and left the pieced border plain. I had excess of the dark brown fabric, so I used that as the binding. I really wanted to use orange, but I didn't have anywhere NEAR enough (not even bits-n-pieces of different oranges).
The backing was posted yesterday, but here is another shot with the front also.
I know we all say we "love" our quilts, but......I REALLLLLY love this quilt :0) I used thinsulate batting that was given to me from a friend of the family. I like this batting; light, yet warm! And very easy to quilt.....
So.....number 5 of Peg's July Challenge has been met, but I still have others downstairs calling my name. Cathy's Aunt Sukey is still in the process of hand-sewing the three quilted pieces together; the baby quilt is still being hand-quilted, hmmmmm......what to work on next downstairs???? I think I may want work on my Spinning Rails next (from my left over CC rails).
Once I came upstairs after completing the OC, I found grandma playing with the girls, and grandpa resting on the couch. Clearly, he had had some beautifying by some lil' lady......*grin*
