square dance finish

I have a finish
From my Carolina home hosted a mystery quilt in 2018. It was the first time, I had tried one of her mysteries. I enjoyed it, and I like the result. It was easy to keep up with the clues, and, I had a quilt top shortly after the reveal, but, it has languished in the "to be quilted" pile until now. This one is called square dance. I chose to do the queen size. It finished at about 82 x 90 and used a lot of scraps.



For the back, I used a strip from a trip around the world that I knew I would not finish.


I used a checkerboard print for the binding, and, I quilted all over swirls.

This counts for my one monthly goal and PHD 2020 I have finished 13 ufos this year so far, and started 7.

  9. You quilt caught my eye as it looked very familiar. Now I know why - I took part in the same mystery but only did a tabletopper. Well done on a pretty finish.
