Gman's Quilt is Finished!
Hooray, I did it! Quilting complete, binding sewn down. It's finished!
Some history for new followers:
My son Gman (11) requested a quilt using only red and black fabrics. I started off intending to make a traditional log cabin using the black and red...but then got bored of that so turned it into the star, and added borders in a liberated medallion style until it was the size I wanted it. And yes, I did stray slightly from the red and black requirement...naughty mama :-)...but lucky Gman is pleased with it and agrees that the bright green goose, square and binding are what gives the quilt its "wow!" factor. I hand quilted with perle cotton using a nice big needle. Lovely :-)
It hasn't been easy getting a good photo - I really could do with a nice wall or barn or something to hang quilts on lol. Hopefully the collection of photos below give a pretty good idea of what it looks like. Waif insisted on cuddling up under there with Gman.
