Last September I finished a quilt top made with a rich purple and lots of Dutch chintz. You can read more about it HERE.
I finally got it quilted and bound! If you look at the original finish you will see that it only had borders on one side. Mr. Squash agreed with me that it needed borders all around. Thank goodness I had enough leftover fabric!
I photographed this yesterday outside. There was some unexpected cloud cover which made getting the color just right.
Here is the back taken inside. It's Kaffe Ombre which as soon as I saw it, I knew it was the perfect backing. Even Mr. Squash agreed again. What a guy.
If you click on the photo you can see the quilting. I did an all over feather which is just right for this quilt. It will be a gift to a friend who has been ill for some time. She can snuggle up in it on days when she doesn't want to get off the couch.
Check out my new food dehydrator. Looks like a space-age UFO, doesn't it. Once again Mr. Squash came up with a way to use our enormous grape crop this year - make raisins! I think I'll keep him (wink). I have my first batch going out on his work table in the garage because it generates a lot of heat. On a 90+ degree day, that isn't good in the house. If they turn out, I'll give you a peek.
