Pine + Bow Quilt Along Post #5: A Finish!
It’s time to share a finish–or two–my final Pine and Bow! I chatted quite a bit about both in this new video. Check it out here.
In this video I share each of my finished projects, talk about the quilting for each, decide on my borders and binding choices, as well as offer up some takeaways from the experience. It’s not too often that I get this kind of chance to share so much about my thought process, and I hope there are some nuggets in there for you to carry along on your own journey.
My Pine Quilt Finished
Here’s a look at my finished Pine quilt.
My favorite part is how the binding worked out at the top, left corner. The print in the fabric magically frames it, which was a total accident. There’s no way I could have planned for this. I love a happy surprise!
I decided to add borders to the sides in order to make it a bit more square. It’s just what I was feeling.
My Bow Quilt Finished
Here’s my Bow quilt finished.
I entertained the idea of turning it into a pillow sham, but given the motif size I decided a mini wall hanging would be even better.
The binding was a flavorful choice that goes in a totally different color direction. It’s what I was in the mood for, and I really like the color and texture it adds to the project.
