Long Time Gone

One quilt entirely made in 2017, and not for a gift, this is quite a rare event. I started the QAL for Long Time Gone (pattern by Jen Kingwell) in the Spring (I even started a little ahead of the game to try and keep it up) and managed to finish the top just by the deadline of end of July. I used fabric from my stash and from my scrap bins to make it.

The top had to wait until November to finally get quilted when the frame was out and this probably one of the slowest quilting I have done. It took me a whole week to finish it, probably because I used lots of different free-motion quilting patterns.

For the backing I used Score Cards from the Lucky Strike collection of Cotton&Steel.

And I used the same fabric for the binding too.

Now I am so happy this lovely quilt is finished and I am to keep it. I am sure I will thoroughly enjoy it.
