Good-Bye 2016!

It’s finally time to say goodbye to a quilt that has been in a box in my workroom since 2016! My Fat Quarter Shop 2016 Block of the Month is finally on the completed list. 🙂

I always wonder why some quilts seem to stitch up in no time at all while others wait and wait. There always seems to be a project with a deadline, or that is newer and fresher to work on.

I must admit that there were times I even forgot that I had this quilt in the que! Oh well, it is finished now and I love it;). I love the off set flowery blocks and the checkered borders.

The white space on each corner was the perfect place for embroidering a name and a date for the lucky recipients who just happened to get married this past weekend.

The backing is cute too.

That light blue with little roses is just perfect! I like the contrast of the dark blue binding.

I always like binding a quilt. The process makes me happy and the finished result really completes the quilt. If you need a tutorial for perfect machine stitched binding, I have a tutorial here.

It is time to neatly fold and wrap this beauty up and give it away.

I am sure my dear, SWEET nephew and new niece are going to enjoy taking it on trips and snuggling up on a cool morning with it!

Thank you so much for dropping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. This is such a beautiful quilt, so gorgeous! I love the little touch of embroidery that you did! I’m currently making my mom a memory quilt and I’ve been thinking about adding some embroidery to it as well! Thanks for sharing about the stitched binding. I think I might try that method this time!!

  2. Hi Tracy! That title gave me pause. Most of us said goodbye to 2016 three years ago . . . but yay for a FABULOUS finish. And what a wonderful gift for the newlyweds. Those fabrics are devine, and the checkerboard pieces add a little whimsy. Fun blocks and fabrics!! They will feel all the love you stitched into it, even if that love was broken over a year or two. ~smile~ Roseanne
