Golf Quilt Finished!

Finished quilt

Note to self: move lamp when taking picture of quilts

Even though I feel “finished” at various stages, really finished feels really different.

Of course there are things I would do differently, now that I see it bound, like make a narrow (1/4-inch) strip of the reddish brown after the check border to partner with the binding. And maybe less of the green around the Ohio Star.  Maybe I can apply those observations when designing another quilt.

If you missed the close-up photos of the quilting, they are here.

    This is a wonderful quilt – glad to see it finished and on the bed.

  2. Congratulations on the finish! Your golf quilt looks great and I love how it suits the bed! Thanks for visiting me at Sew Fresh Quilts and leaving a comment about the Flowers in the Sun quilt. Just wanted to let you know you are a no-reply blogger. Otherwise I would have responded by email to thank you.

  3. Fantastic….bet you are thrilled to have it all done now…hugs Khris

  4. Beautiful. I love the churn dash row. Congrats on your finish.

  5. Note to Self: Steal golf quilt if you ever get to go across the country and visit Claire … LOL.

    I guess my comment got lost in cyberspace, but I love this quilt as is! It’s so creative and unique, and perfect for the bed.

    • Thanks for pulling the comment back from cyberspace (aka retyping it)! I don’t know when it finally occurred to me to design with the separation of mattress top and drop in mind. I’d made a couple bed quilts without paying any attention. And thanks to all for the good words.

Conversation is good, so please join in. I'll reply here if it seems relevant to others, by email, or by visiting your blog.
