Farm Girl Vintage Sampler quilt finished!

It's done!!! Yay!!!
It's taken two years to finish and I love it!
I sent it to my grand daughter Kennedy,
 who will turn 10 on July 19.
A gift of love and time!


I love all 52 - 6 l/2" squares :)


 Here I am busily binding my quilt so I could put it in the mail.




If you want to see more photos of my quilt, or the corner sawtooth stars, or the machine quilting, you can type Farm Girl Vintage in the search button at the top right of my blog.
Thanks for following me!

Farm Girl Vintage Sampler is quilted!

I finished machine quilting Kennedy's quilt!
She doesn't know it's her quilt, I'm giving it to her for her 10th birthday, this month :)


I followed the gingham fabric, quilting along the gingham, every 3 stripes, back and forth, creating a crosshatch effect.



You can see on the mint green minky back :)
See the crosshatch design?
I outlined the starts in each corner.  


I followed Lori Kennedy's "simple flower" motif and free motion quilted the design in the center of each block.
I used the wavy stitch on my Bernina, to outline all the blocks.


I did a free motion reverse loop, on the second border, outside of the flowers.


One problem with machine quilting with my sewing machine, is that I can't get the fabric taut like you would be able to on a quilt frame or long arm machine.


I'm going to choose one of these 3 fabrics for the binding.
Can you help me choose which one to use?
Just tell me in the comment box below :)


I like this Sew Cherry yellow!


I think the pink is different, because it contrasts with the red, ever so slightly.


The blue would be pretty too :)


Thanks in advance, for helping me.
I'll post photos of the finished quilt next week!
