Another finish!!


I have another quilt done.

I think this is the first one that doesnt have a home in mind when I made it.

Its my black and white one that I talked about its piecing here and its "birthing" here

For quilting it I decided that I would do a mixed job. I tied the center and hand quilted the outside.

I quilted the straight lines while I was on our road trip. Somewhere along the way I picked up a blue fabric marker so I could draw in the pattern on the border.

you can see the red stitches on the blue line.

 and here is how it looks all done!

I washed it with a towel too- so it got a bit fuzzy.

I asked Zeke if he liked and he right away went to sit on it and then...

tied in red about 3 inches. 
But I saw some came undone after washing- does anyone have a specific technique that works for them??

So nice that we could lay down and put our feet up!

now to decide what to do with it :)

I tie with a 'suture' knot - take a stitch and then tie a granny with a square knot on top - don't clip your thread too close to the knot - leave a 'shag' so the thread raveling will not loosen your knot.
