Camp Loopy 2015, Project Three

I got my quilt back yesterday!  After making the top and seaming the backing, I sent it off to Hedgehog Quilting in Colorado to be quilted by Sheryl.  Since Sheryl is a Loopy Groupie (and I think is actually a Loopy Elf as well), I didn’t have to explain Camp Loopy to her.  She already knew and understood the time frame we were working with.

I originally contacted her back in July about the possibility of quilting my camp project and we discussed timing to allow her time to quilt it as well as shipping time, while getting it back to me in time to bind and finish it.  We agreed that if I had it to her by mid August, she could get it quilted and shipped back to me ASAP so I could finish it.  Fortunately, I was able to get the top pieced faster than expected so we had plenty of time.  She still got it quilted and back in the mail super fast, though.
I chose an allover pattern for the quilting because I felt like all the florals in the fabrics would overwhelm anything else.  I told Sheryl I liked a swirl pattern she’d used on another quilt, so she emailed me several designs with swirls and/or florals.  The one I chose was a different swirl design from the original one I’d seen, but this one seemed more botanical.  It kind of reminds me of vines or fiddlehead ferns.  It really only shows up on the more tonal triangles, but I like the way it kind of fades in and out on the quilt.

In the photos, I have trimmed off the extra batting backing left from the quilting, but I haven’t put on the binding yet.  As soon as I took those photos, I took the quilt upstairs to my sewing machine and sewed the binding to the front of the quilt.  I’ll start hand sewing it to the back later today!  Hopefully Monday I’ll have a finished quilt to show you!

Have a great weekend!
