The Original Candy Hearts Quilt [Finished]

It's done.


I loooove the quilting on this. 
Nice and tight.
Ric rac sewn down.
Just.  Lovely.
Kayleen [if you're reading this], you're awesome!

I also love pictures of quilts.  So I took about a million.  Care to see a few?


I snuck onto my neighbors property to take these pictures.  Then I climbed [well, let's be honest, I trespassed] through the fence onto some horse property. Then the husband came home.  I got caught.  But it's o.k. cause I then got permission to walk around their yard to take even more pictures [I think I signed up to fix some kind of boat canopy-shade-thingy in the process though], but it's o.k. 

Anyways, here are a few of those pics:


 

 

The pieced back consists of some leftover polka dot fabric and charm squares from the quilt front, as well as a few other girly fabrics I had laying around.


Gotta have a binding shot for some reason...

I'm sure you all are out having fun this weekend, but I thought I'd post somethin' for those of you just takin' it easy.  If you're interested in the free tutorial for this quilt click HERE.  More details about this quilt are HERE.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!

I loved that quilt when you first showed it to us and it is even better quilted. You did a great job with all the pictures, even if you did get caught.
With 7 granddaughters, this one needs to be on my to do list.
Hope you had a great holiday too, Amber.
