Finished... Broken Herringbone, Baby!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I did!

It was a full weekend, but I still found some time to finish up the Broken Herringbone, Baby! quilt.


I settled on quilt-in-the-ditch.  No pressure.

It does not distract from the herringbone design.
And I love the simplistic look on the back of the quilt!



I also have the Gone Fishing quilt basted and started on it.


Backed in flannel with these cute turtles.

Outline quilting the fish and worm.... And then quilting waves in the water.
 Will do the same outline quilting for the letters and then quilt clouds and/or wind in the sky.

How was your weekend?  Relaxing or productive?  Or both!?

I love the SITD quilting! So perfect. I love the design on the back. I think with the more intricate design it speaks for itself and I don't want to take away with quilting. Fab!

so stunning, front and back!

Know what's funny? I have a stitch in the ditch coming up and I'm dreading the crap out of it! I think in the ditch is WAY harder than other types of quilting. :)

It really worked out for you - perfect call. :)

Well done on a fabulous finish! It looks just great!

Karin said...

Nice...I think it looks great. I see that you attach the binding by machine. Maybe I should try that. Do you reckon that it is quicker to do?

How cute is that turtle fabric?! Love how your herringbone quilt tuned out :) My weekend was too busy = no sewing, ho hum ...

Valerie Reynolds said...

Oh my! Your broken herringbone quilt is gorgeous. The colors and the design is really stunning. You're right about the quilting not taking away from the design and even enhancing the back - really great job.
