A Friday Finish!

My "Rollercoaster" quilt has been finished for a 

couple of days now....

Quilted with Aurifil #1231

but today the sun came out for me to get some 

pretty photos!


I love everything about this quilt, despite it being 

started during a rather 'down' time of my life....


hence the Rollercoaster name!


I quilted it with a wavy line, 

which you can see quite clearly here...


  It's a little like the track a 

rollercoaster runs on!


I was thrilled to find the backing online,

at a bargain price!

The backing is "Sun-sational" by Maude Asbury

and the label is bordered with a precious scrap from 

special friend!

I bound it with a white spotted black fabric.


The quilt finishes at approximately 54" X 72",


and is now living happily on the back on my sofa!


Happy sewing!

  4. I love this quilt! It's so nice to see it finished and quilted--another beautiful quilt made by you. I love the quilting and since you and I have the same sewing machine now, I'm going to have to ask you for some machine quilting tips.

  7. Such an amazing quilt from such an amazing quilter. I love that quilts can hold the memories of a time and space in our lives -- whether good, bad, up or down -- and think the name is such a perfect moniker for this beautiful quilt. The quilting is perfect, but I love that binding that goes with it! All in all, another fabulous finish (and great label)!

  9. I'd call it a Fabulous Finish! Love the quilting. It's a machine stitch, right? The serpentine stitch? Or did you use a walking foot to free motion your own waves. In any case, it suits the quilt. I didn't realize the quilt was therapeutic for you - made during a "down time." I hope that's all behind you now, and that you can enjoy looking at this quilt on the back of your sofa, and cuddling under it.

  18. This is a lovely finish. How wonderful that a sunny day came along for photographs.
    Your quilt is gorgeous and the quilting works so well. I love all the different locations for the photos, too.
    Congratulations on a great finish.

  19. Yay! Terrific finish. It's funny how with some photo angles you can't even see the quilting, and then BAM - there it is, and so obvious! It will certainly make an eye catching display.
