Five minutes here and ten minutes there and the binding is finally on. My Swoon quilt is done!
I love the way it turned out. I have a vintage sheet I’ve saved for years, purchased long ago still in the original package, which I used for the backing. It wasn’t quite wide enough so a pink strip of an old Anna Griffin fabric which used to be bed skirts in this room was added to finish it off.
I took this quilt in and had the owner of a nearby shop quilt it for me. I couldn’t be happier. I love the pattern she quilted it with!
For the binding I used the only yardage I had (and my favorite print) of the Ava Rose line, the deep aqua with dark pink roses on it. I think it looks great with both the quilt top and the back.
So here it is, the whole thing:
From the other side:
Yay! I love it. This one is going to my bedroom for those nights when it’s a bit cooler. Just looking at it makes me happy.
