I started the Mansfield Park quilt over a year ago and it is almost finished! Woo Hoo!
I'm finishing up the free motion quilting. I'm not entering it in any show. This is my first quilt larger than a twin size where I have done the quilting myself. Luckily, the actual quilting doesn't show up a lot because it sure isn't perfect!
I quilted it in two pieces because it would have been too big to quilt in one piece. It measures 82" x 96".
Here it is laid out on a larger bed with the two halves lined up.
I sewed the two sections together and then placed it on a table with the top side down so I could prepare to join the back sections.
I trimmed the batting so each side would butt up against each other.
Then I folded the backing in preparation for hand stitching it together. I finished that and then quilted the section in the middle where the quilt was joined. Tomorrow I'm going to bind it and I will post a picture of the whole quilt when I'm finished. Monday night is my guild meeting, so it will be finished for that.
In my September 4 post, I told about a giveaway of a wool applique pumpkin that I won from JoAnn . Well, Here it is finished and hanging on my china cabinet. He's kind of prim!
Thanks for visiting! Enjoy your weekend.
