Solid Color Quilt

I finally quilted my totally solids quilt.  I had it pin basted for a couple of months.  I made this over a year ago.  My first foray into using solids only.  I also used variegated threads on the top and lavender thread in the bobbin.  This is a two sided quilt.

Color Cues

This is my first time to use a different thread on top and on the bottom.  I also made double sided binding for the first time.  It was not as hard as I thought it would be. It is hard to see but the top has blue binding and the back has dark purple.  


  1. I love your use of solids, looks great! I say a year is not bad to have a quilt hanging around.

  2. Your quilt looks great. I think I have a couple in my closet that needs to be quilted from 2006. They just do not inspire me anymore. But one of them will go to my niece when she comes home from Afganistan. (sorry not sure how to spell it.)

  3. What a wonderful quilt!!!!!! I am working on getting my pile quilted, I hear ya on finishing UFO 's. So glad you visited my blog so that I found yours.
