The lucky square quilt is finally finished and has a new name: Pink-a-lime-a-tron. Kim came up with the name. I'm so indecisive and not creative when it comes to naming.
Details on the fabrics can be found here.
Machine pieced, quilted and bound a mi casa
I forgot to take a picture of the back of the finished quilt so here is a full shot prequilting. The back is pieced with mostly flannel and a row of blocks highlighting the fabrics from the front. I had intended to use the purple dot only but I miscalculated how much I needed and had to go back and buy more. Joann's was out so I got some gray pebbly flannel. I am very happy with the way it looks.
Here is most of the back after quilting.
I quilted with an orange peel design except I peels are going from seam to seem instead of diagonally across the square.The texture it creates is just fantastic. I used Aurifil #1147 light leaf green for the top thread Aurifil #2530 Watermelon pink for the bobbin. The pink really shows up on the green and gray fabrics but melts right into the purple dot.
Now you can appreciate how much difference the quilting makes. And yes this did take hours. I used my home machine which has about 6 inches of throat space. It took about the same amount of time as it would to watch all the Pixar movies. Guess how I know that?
And for the last touch of luxury, for the binding I used AMH good folks voile.
Don't forget to enter my 100 post give-a-way. It ends Wednesday night.
