Groovy Watercolor {a finished quilt}

FINALLY…this one has been quilted, bound, washed, dried and full of crinkly awesomeness!!  groove1

I would have to say that pulling a newly made quilt out of the dryer for the first time is probably my favorite part of the entire quilting process.  I just love to feel the wonderful quilted texture and the soothing smell of fabric softner 🙂

This was only the second quilt I have completed on the new long-arm.  I think the reason it took me so long to quilt this one is because I couldn’t decide just how to quilt it.  I decided to keep it simple and do quilt wavy lines in the opposite direction of the quilt’s rows.  I’m really happy with the way it turned out.

  I decided to name this one “Groovy Watercolor” because the colors remind me of a watercolor painting.

Now that this one is done, I will get to deliver three of the quilts I’ve made this year as Christmas presents.  I can’t wait to see the faces of the kids when they open up their own new quilts.  I know that each of them will be well loved and used.

Whew…now back to working on more Christmas gifts!

I’m linking up with Thanks Goodness It’s Finished Friday and Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts.

  1. This looks awesome! It makes me think of my bedroom when I was a teenager in the 60s – it would have been perfect! What a wonderful Christmas keepsake. She will absolutely love it (and you for taking the time to make it for her)!
