The quilt that I finished through working with the awesome ladies of the annual Stay at Home Round Robin (SAHRR) is ready for its reveal. I actually finished the binding several days ago and we’ve been waiting for a day that was sunny and without a stiff breeze for picture-taking. But this is spring in the Salt Lake Valley, so I might as well be wishing for a unicorn. It just doesn’t exist. So…. We battled with the breeze to gather a few snapshots, and it is what it is!
May I present “Swimmingly”, whose name was coined by my friend Sally.
I had this quilt professionally quilted with a nautical pantograph that includes all manner of sea life and seashells, anchors and more. Perfect! The binding is a black Kona cotton that blends in well with both the front and back.
“Swimmingly” finished at 57x64”, which is a great lap size for us. Bruce has claimed it as his, which is fine with me, LOL.
So, with all that said, I’d like to thank the organizers of the SAHRR for their time, organizational efforts and cheerleading as we all followed their prompts and leads to create some fantastic quilts and other finishes. You guys are awesome, and I hope we’re all able to continue this for many years to come!
