Peas and Carrots Quilt Finished





Wow, I found it very interesting to read the comments regarding what thread other quilters use. Most of them I had never heard of before, so I hope I am making a good decision to switch to Aurifil. But, I have sewn with it and I do love it, so hopefully it will all be good.

I FINALLY finished my Peas and Carrots quilt that I have been working on for a long time. I just finished sewing down the binding--it has been quilted now for a few months but somehow I hadn't gotten to attaching the binding. If you don't already know, Peas and Carrots was a Moda line by American Jane. I had bought a fat quarter bundle which included some of the panels that you see as the border. I purchased extra panels to be able to use them as a border. I can't quite remember what inspired me to make cubes--just a love of geometric quilts although when I started I had no idea what a pain it would be to sew the y-seam rows together. That took me the longest to tackle. Then, trying to fit the panel borders on was another great hassle. Each panel is not quite the same size and getting it on straight was quite an effort! I am extremely pleased with the result and happy to count this quilt among the finished numbers...

That's a pretty amazing quilt - the use of the border fabric really makes it. I would never think to do that, but it looks great.

WOW!!!! This quilt is just incredible! I love the tumbling blocks, and the border fabrics are fantastic -- and very unusual. What a wonderful quilt!

Nice post... Looks like flash memory is finally beginning to become more popular. Hopefully we'll start seeing decreasing solid-state drive prices real soon. Five dollar 32 GB Micro SDs for your DS flash card... sounds gooooood.
