Finished....AGAIN!

Long time followers of my blog will probably 

recognise this quilt....



In fact it is one of my most 'pinned' quilts

 of all time!


Who knows why?

  


I pieced it and quilted it a LONG time ago!


Where I got the pattern!

But for some reason, the quilting was horrid and

even worse after the quilt was washed! 

Horrid!!!

So I unpicked all those stitches, and banished it to 

the back of the cupboard!


This week I gathered up my courage and decided it 

could not languish there any longer!

It's still not perfect but at least its finished....



again!

I chose to machine the binding, just so I could be 


done!


As they say, better finished than perfect!


Now I can move on to something else,

which is always a good thing!

linking up with Fabric Tuesday

Happy sewing!

  1. This looks amazing with the straight line quilting Susan, but now you have me worried as I have done quite a few quilts with the serpentine stitch that you originally quilted this with and I dont think that I have washed any of them as yet so I hope they are still ok!

  2. It looks fabulous, maybe because it has been pre-washed, you won't have anymore problems either.
    Good on you for redoing it and unpicking all that work.

  3. It turned out lovely and I really like the way you quilted it this time! The quilting fits perfectly to the design of the quilt! And the binding fabric is so lovely! Two thumbs up for the finish! ;-)

  6. Such a wonderful finish, I love it! They say 'red is the new neutral' and it's just perfect with those DS fabrics. I've been wanting to try it out sometime as a background too, inspiring!

  10. I am pretty sure this is the quilt that drew me into your blog; I pinned it and remember doing sort of a gasp when you said you were unhappy with the quilting. it turned out amazingly lovely and now I am wanting again to make one. I love the straight line quilting and the binding is perfect!

  11. I love it! Can't believe you unpicked all those stitches as I don't know if I'd have the determination to redo it. Good for you. It turned out great. I can see why it's been pinned so often.

  12. I've not been around for very long, so haven't seen this quilt before. And I agree with the others - it is pretty awesome. For me, one reason it stands out - Denyse Schmidt fabric! Starting out with great fabric and pairing it with the red background, who would of thought that combo would be so striking? Glad you pulled it out and fixed the quilting.

  13. I admire your determination and perserverance in all things quilty. To re-do a top, making it better, is such a great Susan thing to do--it looks fabulous!

  15. I DO remember this one and your dislike of it at one stage. It looks great now and I love the binding you chose.

  16. I can't imagine un-picking all that quilting but the results were worth it. I have been asked to make a gift for the women's conference speaker and the theme is inter-woven stories. This pattern might be a good place to start.

  19. I've unpicked a line or two here or there of my quilting, but never a whole quilt!?! It's great to see that you didn't leave this is the unfinished pile forever. I love scrappy quilts, and this is just lovely. Congrats!

  21. Love it, Suz!! Such a gorgeous quilt - no wonder it's been pinned so much. And that binding is fab.

  22. Oh well done for tackling this again! It looks fabulous - I think the red background is amazing and the stripey binding just adds the finishing touch :-)

  23. I love this quilt. Why is it so popular on Pinterest? Maybe the red, or the scrappiness, or the way it looks like a Bay City Roller tartan on steroids (in a good way).
    Hurrah for a finish/rescue!

  24. I don't think I remember this quilt the first time around but it sure looks good a second time around.
