My dear SIL, Rita, pointed out to me last week that I didn't include any photos of the finished quilt with my post about machine binding. I did take a few close-up shots of the quilting, but neglected to take an overall shot of it before it was hung at the LQS (whoops!)
I know you've seen it before, but here's the whole thing before quilting and binding...
In each of the four focus fabric blocks, I combined some outline quilting of the main features (birds and flowers) with a meandering scroll throughout the open areas...
The off-white diamond areas are quilted in a "ribbon candy" type loop to fill the space, while the outer dark blue rings are quilted echoing the seam lines at 3/4" intervals. So easy with that guide bar that comes with most machines - what is the technical name for that thing anyway?
The backing fabric is a 2010 Autumn Glory by Jason Yenter print that I thought coordinated nicely with the dark blue/teal binding, and it was on the sale wall! Win-win!
