Floral Pop! – Finished

Another finish! And it’s a regular sized quilt! It’s been a while but this one is a Christmas gift and I needed to get it done. The quilt top finish post was made in February. I’ve had it basted since April when I basted the Birds and the Bees quilt. It’s been hanging out in my sewing room awaiting quilting inspiration. And when it hit I just had to finish it. I went with the same wavy quilting that I used on my Contained Chaos mini.

However, I quilted the quadrants from the outside-in using an ‘L’ shape. And quilted the middle center across end to end with the wavy quilting. I think it turned out really cool and I am super pleased with it.

The backing combined the original fabric I bought for the back and some of the remaining floral focal fabric with one bold strip down the back.

I quilted it with this variegated pink thread from Gutterman.

For the binding I used the remnants of the backing and I love the look it gives.

The gift recipient will be thrilled! She’s bold and outspoken and this quilt represents her really well. It’s also in her favorite colors.
