Christine's Kitchen {My Finished Quilt}

I am excited to share lots of details on my finished Christine's Kitchen Quilt! If you want to see the quilt parade, it is posted here!


I quilted my version of this quilt similarly to my mom's original version -- meanders in the background and loop-de-loop quilting in the dishes. I started with the center dishes and worked my way out -- I did a dish and then all of the meandering around it until I got to the next dish. I used a light tan thread to do the quilting.




For the four patch border, I did loop-de-loops so that each patch has a loop.


The backing is pieced from two pieces of black and lime green batik that I have had in my stash since I made my Twist of Lime quilt! I had bought these fabrics and then decided not to use them, but they ended up being perfect for the backing and binding of this quilt. I used the dot fabric for the binding.


This quilt was so fun to make as a quilt along project with all of you! If you haven't joined in, you can still download the patterns for free for a short while longer. If you did participate and have a finished quilt or finished quilt top (or nearly finished counts too!) tag me (@littlebunnyalison) on Instagram or email me (littlebunnyquilts@gmail.com) with a picture of your quilt top or finished quilt!
