Buttercup Patchwork No. 2

is finally finished! I must say, I really love this one for so many reasons.

At first I was not thrilled with the fabric after I bought it but I did have 6 yards to use so I just went for it.

I made 2 quilts from the Buttercup (by Joanna Figeroa). I think I like 2 the best. I made myself use the pieces I had left over and the extra yardage and even a few scraps to complete this one. I made the back in so many pieces! Now I like it best and I actually call it the front.

Now, what started as the front, I call the back.

I quilted this one very simply using loopy lines about every 6 inches in a grid pattern. I love the effect this has on the finished look. It is more puffy. I like.

The next finish I have planned is the do.Good.Stitches quilt. Just a few more rows to quilt and then the binding...which is already to go. I made this quite some time ago. I love making bias binding. Anyone else love it, too?

Linking to {Sew} Modern Monday (first time!) and Fabric Tuesday (again).

Have a blessed day!

love, Lisa

It would be hard for me to decide which is the front and which is the back! Both look great! I like to make my binding way before I need it...who wants to stop and make the binding when it's time to put it on!?
