It's Finished-----

Finally I have finished my little white art quilt that I started back at the beginning of the year in Karen Ruane's class.
All I had to do was back it and bind it but I had it hanging on a piece of book board and covered up so that it wouldn't get dirty.
I was going to put a border on it as well as the binding but the border did nothing for the finished product so I took it off.
I wanted to do something to keep the backing and the front together and I finally came up with the idea of using buttons.
I have some tiny little pink heart shaped buttons--very, very small buttons in fact and I used them on the front and then added another one on the back in the same spot.
See if you can spot them on the quilt-there are six alltogether.
Hopefully the picture will enlarge when you click on it--sometimes they do and sometimes they don't and I don't know why that happens.






I am really pleased with how it has all worked out---it will be entered in the Guild exhibition and then Susan can have it for her birthday.

I love it Doreen. I love how you did the colors. I find that very hard, to stick to so little color, but the result is fantastic. Now you made me want to do something similar.

That is really lovely Doreen, so pretty. Well done.

Robin Mac said...

Gorgeous. I really hope I get to see it in reality - we have a bit of a hiccup with Bill and a very painful back at present - praying for it to get better so we can go away. Cheers

It is gorgeous! Makes much more sense to me in its finished state than it did while you were working on pieces of it. The pink buttons are a perfect finishing touch. Bet you will get lots of comments at the Guild!

The picture enlarged and I was able to see how beautiful this is. So much work must have gone into it. The little bits of pale pink are just perfect.
