A Finish! Granny Squares Quilt

Granny Squares Quilt - Facing Forward

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted a quilting finish! I've been sitting on this Granny Squares quilt top since March, and with the Indy Modern Quilt Guild's outdoor quilt show coming up the first Friday in August, this was the motivation I needed to finish it up.

Granny Squares Quilt

I quilted this with my new/used machine (a Bernina), and I'm still getting the hang of it, but this is by far the quickest I've quilted a top with so much detail. I chose a random pebbles quilting design over the whole quilt. I still consider myself a free-motion newbie, but I'm definitely a fan of the texture it provides. This quilt is super fun and bubbly to touch!

Granny Squares Quilt Back

I backed the quilt in wide strips of three fabrics: Amy Butler's Midwest Modern and two prints from Cut Out & Keep by Heather Moore. I bound the quilt in the buttery yellow Blockprint Blossom from Joel Dewberry's Heirloom, to pull in the colors from the front and back.

After getting its outdoor debut at the quilt show, this baby is going to a brand new home, and I cannot wait to share it. :)
