Alliance Nine Patch

Last night I finished the quilting and the binding on my little 'Alliance Nine Patch' quilt, and I have to say I'm entirely thrilled with it!

Because I'm home alone right now, it's totally fine for me to stitch into the night. So I didn't feel at all naughty when I popped the finished item into the washer for a quick rinse and spin at 1am!

I really wanted my little project to get a head start on drying overnight. I laid it out on towels on the dining room floor - I really think giving it a rinse gives all the elements of the quilt a chance to settle and the quilting really 'pops'.

This morning I plan to pin another quilt and get busy. I shall have myself a little quilting marathon and see how many I can get thru before my home gets populated again!

Looking good I have a mountain of my own tops waiting to be done. I hope to get through some of them before the end of the year ( it looks bad when you start the year with more unfinished quilts than the year before lol).
Take care Bec

You are so right... that final step in the washer really makes it a quilt, or like a young friend says, "I love the bumpies on it!"
