YES! It’s finished!
Binding is my least favorite part and I was honestly dreading it for this one because it’s the biggest quilt I’ve done so far. But when I decided to move my sewing machine out the bar in our family room, the binding went on so much quicker than normal, when I’ve got the quilt draped over my left arm/shoulder and trying to maneuver it through the machine.
True to form, I didn’t keep up with the group, but I made it all the way to week 3, piecing rows, but week 3 lasted 6 weeks instead! (Here’s the pieced top post.) That’s because hubby wanted a ‘bigger’ quilt, but he never really told me how much bigger. So he kept buying me fabric (3 sets of 18 FQs), and I kept pressing, cutting, and sewing triangles until I/we wound up with it this size. I hope he’s happy with the size, there’s no going back now!
If you’re interested in making a triangle quilt of your own, head on over to Paula’s quilt along – she has some fantastic tips. The ladies that participated made some pretty awesome quilts – it has been so fun checking them all out. I started piecing mine together then I’d see a layout that I thought was particularly cleaver, then I’d wonder why I didn’t think to do something like that! Maybe the next one…
The finished size is 93.5×96″.
Here’s an outdoor pic. It’s cropped a bit – it got a little wonky in the breeze, and my models are vertically challenged! But I wanted you to see the wonderful colors in natural light.
