Black and White Quilt – Last Finish of 2009

Well it is almost 2010 and I just finished binding the Black and White Quilt.  I quilted it today.  I have been wanting to try a freehand Baptist Fan design so that is what I did.  I used a grey thread that blends into the black and whites and allows the quilting definition to take over instead of the thread.

I really like how it turned out.  Here are a few close-ups of the quilting.


It was fun to do the fans and I think this will look good on a lot of busy quilts.

Tomorrow is a big day at the quilt shop and this quilt will be ready to hang.  I also cut kits for this project so others can make the quilt.  Last year New Years Day was very busy at the shop so hopefully it will be again tomorrow.



  1. What a terrific way to finish out the year!! Wonderful finish. Here is to many more in the New Year! Happy 2010!!

  2. Wow, I watched this one progress in a very quick time! Very well done, it is a winner!
    I hope you the best in 2010, Melinda.

  3. I LOVE it, Melinda. Happy New Year!

  4. Looks great! You did this one up really fast! Woo hoo!

  5. I couldn't agree more with Jackie: what a great year end finish! Your pre-cut kits may be gone in no time.

  6. I love the fan quilting! You did great.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
