Kitschy quilt is done

The kitschy quilt is finally done and I LOVE it.

You have seen in previous posts about how I wanted to add the diamond border around and I love the teal/blue binding, it add a nice frame to the quilt.

I custom quilted it, I did bubbles on the skinny borders and sashing, curves on the outside of the diamonds on the border and ruler work on the blocks.

I didn’t follow every single line in each block but outlined the main things and then did a few highlights too.

The backing was scrappy with leftovers from the front.

and I embroidered the label, found this cute house on designsbysick.com

I decided to hang the quilt up in my studio and it looks great! it’s just SEW much fun to look at.

As I was working on the binding I was telling my husband about these BOMs and how it’s all about Betty, how Betty is so perfect, having lemonade ready for the kids and always baking cookies etc… at the end it just makes you hate Betty- he replied that maybe Betty should be a role model instead!?? well……. okay… hanging head low.. LOL Winking smile

 

I want to say thanks to Krisy at Quietplay! a GREAT BOM….

I love it! It turned out just great! Great colours! And Betty is just so much fun - I think everyone loves to hate her :P

Bea, this turned out brilliantly, you got the sashing and borders dead on, in my humble opinion, and the quilting is just right too, you've been a really busy 'Bea' already this year!

Too cute Bea! I feel the same about the Proverbs 31 woman...it is a love/hate thing. LOL!

It's a beauty! The colors are fun and the border adds that finish touch! Outstanding! Betty is a bum. I bet she had a housekeeper.

What a fun project, Bea! I've always been intimidated by the Proverbs 31 Woman, so needless to say...I'll never be a Betty either! LOL!
