2013 Aurifil DOM Quilt Finished

The last stitches, attatching the label, was done this morning, and it is now official; my 2013 Aurifil Quilt is finished!

My goal post is here:  ALYoF March Goal .

Vibrant, strong colors of this quilt. The 12 designer blocks were surronded by 8 blocks that balances the quilt.

By adding the extra 12" blocks in two different greys, the quilt is approximately 55" x  68". This is a good size for a charity quilt. The children's ward at my local hospital is in need of charity quilts for teenagers, and especially for boys. This one will be donated next month.

Black sashing and border frames the blocks perfectly. The quilting is done in a simple fashion, wavy lines of slate grey thread using my walking foot. As with my previous quilt, I had to audition several fabrics for binding, but ended up with a chocolate brown fabric which complements the brown fabric used in most of the blocks, and gives it a masculine finish.

A good view of the quilt on my porch. As you can see, we still have a good deal of snow in our yard. I hope it will disappear soon!

The back is a duvet cover from IKEA. The grey, wavy lines complements the front.

This quilt is also my 5th UFO completed for 2014.
