I spent all day wrestling with the Rhododendron Trail quilt to get it trimmed down and get the binding on there. Phew. I don't really like that part, but being so close to the end can usually carry me through to the finish.
I made this quilt with Bonnie Hunter's Rhododendron Trail Mystery Quilt earlier this year. It was really fun, though I will be honest, I followed a different layout suggested by another participant because I really liked it. The quilt is pretty big, about 78"x96" so it's a little big for my husband to hold it up for me. I'll try and get some better photos over the holiday when we visit some friends.
|Jeff did a great job with the quilting.|
|The backing. I thought it would be fun to make one gigantic black.|
I still need to do some thread clean up, but I wanted to catch the light before it was gone for the day.

For a week now I have been reading your fabulous blog and thanks to you I dug out a table runner kit and began both sewing, blogging and participating in FNwF. The quilt is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
That's great. I look forward to seeing your projects.Delete
What a great back for your quilt!ReplyDelete
Thanks. I love how you can make blocks any size in Electric Quilt. I just set the measurements and it gave me the roller cutter directions. LOLDelete
Great job getting RT finished. I wish I could get my hubby to do some long arming for me but nope, he's a woodworker. Congrats on the finish.ReplyDelete
I think he is interested because he's a mathematician and these are geometric puzzles to him. Though, I am still surprised by his interest.Delete
Just beautiful! And I love the backing.ReplyDelete
It turned out so lovely! and GO Jeff!! beautiful quilting!ReplyDelete
Your Rhododendron Trail is gorgeous! I love the idea of one ginormous block on the back. Gave me a chuckle!ReplyDelete
