Belated Post - Custom Quilt Completed

With the busy holidays I totally forgot to post up pictures of the custom quilt I made over the holidays.  I posted the progress a while back here, but here is the finished product :).

[Sorry in advance for the less-than-great pictures.  I took this right before I packaged it to be mailed out.  Since it was a rush delivery I didn't have time to get the lighting and everything just right.]

This one-of-a-kind quilt is twin size with blocks that were sent from the requester. It turned out just beautifully.

I picked the colors for the sashing and borders to bring out some of the common colors in the quilt blocks that I was given.  The binding fabric was also supplied by the requester.

Due to the tight timeframe to complete this quilt, I stuck with a basic design for the quilt back.   For the quilting itself, I used a free-style meandering method that worked very well with the quilt.

I hope this is quilt is enjoyed for years to come :)

I'll be sharing this project [like all my projects] at these awesome linking parties :).

It has such an "old timey" feel to it. Your fabric choices, along with the chosen quilting motif, were perfect for this future heirloom. Thanks for the share!!! Hugs, Doreen
