I named it "Lucky" because of the nine four-leaf clover blocks throughout the quilt. Look, there's one now, surrounded by hour glass blocks.
After the hourglass border there are more clovers and then a simple checkerboard border.
After more clovers we come to the final border. But I couldn't pick just one. So there's a herringbone type braid on two sides,
and flying geese on the other two sides.
About the quilting: I knew I wanted to do frilly quilting in each background triangle. When I first set out I wanted to hand quilt the quilt, but that proved too much.
But I am extremely more pleased with this quilt than I would have been had I hand quilted it. Plus, it's finished. (Bonus!)
And of course the selvedge binding. (Selvedge Binding Tutorial here.)
I love the quilting on this quilt because it was fun and gives the quilt so much texture. I also love the colors in the quilt too. Probably because the selvedges are from all my favorite fabrics. Funny how that happens... .
With all the quilting, I really love the whole cloth effect on the back. I used a matching sea-green-turqoise thread for the back.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I'll be linking up to Finish it Up Friday.
