a year of finishes – horizon quilt

When going through my blog posts I found out that the Horizon quilt sat more than a year on the shelve. On Friday I made the last stitches to attach the binding. And here is the Horizon quilt:

Quilted with the walking foot in straight lines following the block pattern in vertical, horizontal and diagonal directions. Once more I have used machine quilting thread from Mettler no. 40 in color natural 04. I have pieced the back with two different fabrics : a green-blue plain and a colorful pattern fabric Cocoon in Sapphire by Valori Wells for Free Spirit. For the backing I have used 2 yards from each fabric.

The binding is a plain fabric in light lavender and stitched to the Horizon quilt entirely with the sewing machine.

  1. Congratulations on such a beautiful finish! Those fabrics are gorgeous. And I love how the quilting turned out. Looks like an Ohio Star pattern from the back. Lovely, lovely work!

    Looks good. The binding color is perfect. I am always amazed at how far back I have to go to catch the beginnings of a quilt I have set aside. Never seems that long ago.

      Well, this year is year of finishes. I have another 2 tops waiting for quilting and I have to check my stash before I order new fabric.

  5. The colors in your quilt make me want to go swimming in a warm, turquoise lagoon. Oh well, I can dream. Thanks for the free fantasy.
