Put your sunglasses on before viewing these pictures! 🙂
I love this quilt. Love how I changed it from the original design to what it is. Love the quilting I did. Yup…..I’m puffed up like a peacock on this one. 🙂
Used a facing rather than a binding for the edge. It’s a free tutorial from Blue Moon River. I’m also going to use her technique for attaching the sleeve. I typically do a sleeve very similar to how she does it but she adds a (new to me) step that adds a little slack to the sleeve so that the quilt hangs better.
Once the sleeve is attached, it will be ready to hang in the local show in early 2015.
And just for reference, here is Paula Storm‘s version called Summer Rain. My quilt sprung from a class I took from her on using the dresden rulers and her non-needleturn appliqué method.
