Pirates and Paris, finished quilt.

It feels like it has been a million years since I have been able to say “I finished a quilt” . Maybe that is why I forgot to take a good picture of the whole quilt top finished?  Ah, well- here is the picture before it was finished, and it didn’t change that much. The rest of the pictures are from the finished quilt. Look close and you can see Eiffel towers in those little blue squares… hence Paris of ” Pirates and Paris”.

This little quicky was so satisfying to work on, and the recipients loved it!

however, the velour backing from Ikea was a terrible idea. It stretched like crazy and I finally just did little tiny button shaped stitching to tie it off. It was bunchy and puckery and was a true mess. Cozy and soft. But a mess.

One perk to the backing was the pre-embroidered design, that I think is just so sweet. Live and Learn, stretchy velour = mess.

  1. Congratulations on your finished quilt! Don’t feel bad about the velour backing. It’s not as bad as you think. I struggled with the Minkee plush backing both times I used it for quilt backing, and although I wasn’t 100% pleased with the results the recipients were thrilled, as I’m sure your lucky Parisian Pirate is thrilled with their new quilt! And best of all, now you get to start a new project!
