A New Finish!

I finished the Triangle Quilt Along! TaaDaa! I'm going to call it Purple Mountain Majesties, for pretty obvious reason.


I simply quilted it in the ditch, and signed it with free motion quilting. Here's a shot of my signature.


Parts of it are hard to see, but that's OK. I will still put a label on  it, but this way, if the label is gone, someone would still know who made it. Here's a picture of the back:


I had some extra triangles so I decorated the backing too. I had just enough left of one of the purples for the binding. Whew! It ran really close. I have a piece left that's about 4" x 6". That'll go into my scrap bin and get cut up for a scrap quilt someday. I've been following Bonnie Hunter and trying to get things cut up into usable scraps.

Thanks,
Lin

Absolutely beautiful!! Congrats on the finish! I was watching Angela Waters doing an interview while she was quilting and she said she almost always hides a little something in her quilting.

What a great finished quilt and I love the back almost as much as the front! How big did it turn out Lin?

Your Purple Mountain Majesty is sew inspiring! Love the quilted signature. That is a clever idea! How cool that you had just enough to finish the binding in that purple splendor!
