Quilted & Bound

i have completely finished my scrappy trip around the world quilt. quilted and bound.

the weather outside is icky so sorry for the pics.

i quilted it myself with just an all over swirl pattern.  simple.

for the back i used up the balance of my strips from my blocks making a row of patchwork and a section of the extra strips.  the rest is a Kona Cotton grey.

for the binding i used another DS print.  this one from the line that was in JoAnn stores.  so the whole quilt with the exception of the Kona on the back is DS.  i am very please with it.  it reminds me of a vintage/older quilt.  i am also very happy to have a completed quilt just 23 days into the new year.

my next WIP project i am working on is my Swoon quilt using Parisville from Tula Pink.  i have 3 blocks done and need to make 6 more.  i also have some quilting to get done on another Tula Pink project.  oh the choices.......

last night i worked on a Swoon block while i chatted on Twitter with other quilters.  every Tuesday evening from 6pm to 8pm pst a bunch of quilters get on Twitter and talk about a variety of things related to quilting.  if you haven't sat in on a #talknt on Tuesday night you might check it out.  its a great way to learn things and meet fellow quilters.

happy sewing
