Sweet Treats finished


Sweet Treats, aka Swoon, is finished, quilted, bound and washed, and she is so soft and cuddly and delicious to look at.She is quilted with continuous curves in the pieced sections, and swirling feathers in the white backgrounds. I used a variegated thread from Superior threads, a Rainbows thread called Seashells, and an off white thread in the bobbin.



While browsing through the webstore Thousands of Bolts a few weeks ago, I found a fabric that was absolutely perfect for the backing, showing more Sweet Treats. And at the same time I found a striped fabric that was printed on the diagonal for the binding. I love the way it makes it look as if I slaved over doing bias binding. *giggle*. And, of course, I used the Faux piped binding technique, found here which enabled me to do the binding completely by machine, so much faster and easier, and looks pretty good too. I'm linking this Friday finish to the Finish it up Friday linky found over at Crazy Mom Quilts. Go take a look, if you have some free time, at some more finishes.
