I picked up my quilt from the longarmer's on Monday and put the binding on it. Today, I sewed the sleeve onto the back while I was at Jacqui's so it is all ready for the quilt show. Karen C did a great job on the quilting--lots of feathers in the wide border and in the blocks. Here are some close ups of the quilting. You can see the design she quilted in the blue border in this picture as well as the feathers in each block.

The backing material is called "Crazy for Dots and Stripes"--very appropriate for my quilt, I think! I wanted a random polka dot fabric for the back. There are lots of fabrics with rows of dots--it was harder to find random dots. I think the ladies in the quilt stores thought I was nuts!
The red binding is perfect!
And, here is the whole quilt--all done!
If you want to see my quilt in person, it will be on display at the "Harvest of Quilts" quilt show at Rowntree United Church on Oct 1st (10 am to 8 pm) and 2nd (10 to 5pm). There are many talented quilters in our guild and there will be lots of wonderful quilts to see. There is also the toonie table-raffle table with donated items to raise money for our charity quilt projects, a tea room and several vendors. The quiltaholics among you might want to make a quilty weekend of it and also visit the nearby quilt show in Ingersol, hosted by the Oxford Quilt Guild. Their show is Sept 30 to Oct 2nd.
