Quilt is finished. Our friends (the quilt owners) came to spend a few days and it was on their bed when they arrived. Here is it in my spare bedroom over another comforter...that's what is hanging down underneath...
|Crown Royal flannel and Denim 109 x 112|
It is now at the end of it's journey...at it's forever home.
Here is a link to the beginning of the Crown Royal/Denim quilt journey:
A few highlights along the way--
Here's where it all started, from bags to blocks.
I alternated the purple blocks with light and dark denim blocks.
I like how the gold braid corners turned out.
To get the light and dark patches, you simply use the wrong side of the denim for the lighter blocks.
I kept the quilting at a minimum so it's actually quite soft and drapes well. It's more like a comforter. I used Hobbs 80/20 batting, backing is cotton, Sew Fine Thread ( navy). Just stitched a serpentine like around each block since I couldn't stitch over the braid.
Simple ditching and wide bead board on the borders.
I finished the skinny gold border to reflect the way the braid crosses at the corners of the blocks.
I had exactly one bag left and used it to frame the label.
The backing is pretty fun too!
