Erin Michael Za Za Quilt Finished!



Long ago I started this quilt.  You can read about the last time I posted about it here.  I finally got around to sewing down the last of the binding today.  Whew!  It takes me a long time to get through bindings sometimes, but I think it is worth the effort to hand sew them rather than on the machine as it gives it such a professional finish.  The fabrics in this quilt are by Erin Michael for Moda from a line called Za Za.  It didn't get very much hype, but I truly love the fabrics in this line.  The colors are so vibrant and fresh that I am surprised that it didn't gain more popularity.  I love this quilt!  I'm happy it's finished too, the only thing is that I was thinking I would keep it for the guest bed, but it's a tad bit too small.  It would really be better on a full size bed rather than on a queen.  Oh well.  It will find a home somewhere...  Are you an Erin Michael fan?  I wish she would design some more fabric lines.  I especially love her paint by numbers.  Are you listening out there Moda?  :)

It is great! I think you are really on the ball lately with all the finishing of UFOs. I love seeing them. BTW I love Erin Micheals too.

Congrats on your finish...I'm so slow about bindings too. I had 2 quilts that I used for over a year on guest beds that only had 3/4s of the binding sewn down. I only just finished so that I could wash them. Your quilt is beautiful, enjoy!

Very nice!! I love this line... I have a nice little stash of it, but just haven't found the "right" project yet.

Ha, I just finished a 3-years-in-the-making quilt top using Tula Pink's Flutterby line... Za Za was one of my options, but got cut in favor of Flutterby. The quilt looks great!
