A Finish to Share

During my little bits of time for sewing this week, I have been working on the spiral quilting on my Jacquie Gering Improvisational Piecing project. 

I used my walking foot--each line of sewing is the width of the walking foot away from the next line.

I love how the quilting looks but it sure takes a long time to do!

You can see that I used some leftover selvage "fabric" that I made for a previous project.

No more tension issues!  I used 3 1/2 bobbins of thread for this quilt.

I will be displaying this quilt as a wall hanging.  I love the texture of the spiral quilting.

All trimmed up and ready to bind!

I chose some bright green fabric from my stash for the binding and machine sewed it on last night.

Today, I completed hand sewing the binding down.

All done!

At the workshop, I asked Jacquie to sign the label for me.  It is now quilted into the quilt.

Thanks for a great workshop, Jacquie! 

Now, on to the next UFO...
