Double Delight {Finished Quilt}

Finishes make me so happy!


I started this quilt last year after I finished my On Ringo Lake quilt top and wanted a new scrap project. This is another Bonnie Hunter quilt pattern, it is available on her site for free currently, and was a mystery quilt of hers a long while ago. 

I swapped some of the colors in my quilt (burgundy instead of red/brown, chartreuse instead of goldenrod) but for the most part my quilt is pretty similar to the original. I modified my borders slightly so that my top and bottom borders were wider than the side borders so that my quilt top was twin sized instead of full sized.



This quilt was also sent off to the long arm quilter. This has a very simple loop de loop quilting motif.


For the backing, I picked out a navy viney extra wide backing. I also used this fabric for the binding. I was lucky enough to find a brand new spool of navy Aurifil 50 wt. thread to use for the machine binding too!

Now this quilt is finished ready to adorn the futon in my sewing room!
