Blue String quilt is done too!

As you may notice, I’ve been on a roll to finish projects!
I finally finished this blue and grey strip quilt where I foundation pieces the strips randomly, then cut the triangles in grey with Accuquilt dies- and also their strip dies for the borders.
I blogged about it here

I quilted a pointy swirl all over, as you may remember it was not lying completely flat, but I was confident that I could quilt it out! (and I DID!)
I tried to be creative with the binding too and used a decorative stitch

the backing was sort of scrappy, I had this blue print that was cute but it was cats with antlers, so sort of Christmasy, but in blue? it just didn’t make sense… I needed more of it, so I added a strip of grey in the middle.

And the other day I got a magazine in the mail (FP easy quilts, fall 2018) and I saw this ad in there from Accuquilt- that’s a quilt I designed and made for them! How cool (I’m) in an ad Winking smile
I blogged about it here
