Another finish

Yes ! Another finish, this one an actual UFO from deep in the pile. Probably from 2015 although I haven’t scrolled back through my posts to see the actual date.  It is a pattern called Film At Five and is supposed to be a  5 X 5 grid of blocks but I gave up at 3 X 4 and called it a wrap. At the time I was working on it I remember being exasperated at how long a process it was to get all the sashing done.  Now that I have it quilted I am in love with it again and want to make another.

I finished hand sewing the binding down last night but wanted to wait and get daytime pictures before posting.

I thought about an all over quilting pattern but decided to go with outlining the sashing and blocks to emphasise the film strip look. And then a big daisy in the block to anchor the batting. If it had been Warm and Natural type batting  I might have done a  stipple in the block but I was using a high loft polyester batting and that seems to  pucker when I try and stipple it.
All in all very happy with the end results and even happier to have a finish to link up with Jo

  1. Lovely finish!

    Actually the first time you mentioned this quilt on your blog was February 2014. Time flies! (I didn't scroll back through all the posts, just did a search.)

  2. That is a fun scrappy pattern. I like the squares floating around each block!
