Yesterday as the snow came down, Kevin and I took a quick walk to the park by our house to take some photos of my finished Follow the Arrow Quilt. Taking them down by the water was his idea, it was absolutely brilliant and so pretty & peaceful!
This makes my second quilt finish for this year! Hooray to finally feeling back on track!
This one was super fun to make, too, using lots and lots of flying geese units in the same measurements as I share in my Soaring High quilt pattern for Cloud9 Fabrics and my Blogger's Choice bundle for the Fat Quarter Shop!
Once finished, I had decided to send my quilt top out to Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting to work her long arm quilting magic! As usual, she did such a beautiful job! Each and every little piece of my quilt was quilted with the most amazing detail! I'm so in love with Melissa's work!!
It's bound using the same Minimalista Optical in Noir print that I recently chose to finish off my Diamond Zig Zag Quilt, it was just too perfect not to use again!
For the back I chose a luscious AGF Voile, the Millefiori print in Cream. Melissa was able to blend the quilting threads in perfectly and the feel is out of this world amazing! This was my first time using voile as a backing and I. Am. Sold!
It all was so gorgeous against the snow!!
Tomorrow I'll be back to share more of Melissa's work, along with a very special gift certificate Giveaway for her long arm quilting service! Be sure to stop back and to have yourself a wonderful Monday!!
