Another Friday Finish

  1. Wow, I love that quilt! That definitely looks like something I want to try for a quick baby quilt sometime. :)

    And congrats on your (presumably successful) defense!!!

  2. This is such a pretty quilt. And a big congratulations on your thesis defense!! What school are you graduating from? I’ll have to defend my thesis orally, too, but I’m just about to begin work on it, so that’s a year or so away from now.

    I would probably be a little nervous about the open areas in the quilting, too. Especially after it was washed a couple times and the batting starts loosening up. A couple of thoughts popped up – You said you quilted in every 5th stripe? What about going back and doing a stitch-in-the-ditch mid-way between those quilted stripes? Or, it’s often very nice to combine linear quilting with organic quilting. If you’re comfortable with FMQ, you could add a meander or a swirl between the lined stripes – either covering the whole area, or just the two stripes in the center of the spaces.

    In any case, it’s a really lovely quilt!
