I incorporated the extra 2.5″ squares left over from making the blocks into the back.
I’m really proud of the quilting on this one. This is the first time I’ve quilted a quilt entirely in a pattern other than FMQ stipple, and the flowers came out really nicely. The quilt is bound with more of the backing fabric.
The color difference between the whites (Bella for the blocks, Kona for the sashing) isn’t as noticeable in person; it doesn’t bother me much in any case.
I feel like I’ve been on Beast Mode with finishing quilts lately. Let’s see if the momentum carries further! Fortunate Granny is my May goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes and one of my Q2 Finish Along goals. Hooray!
