Mendocino Quilt


I finally got some time to add on the binding and toss it in the wash.  I had this one all quilted up since before Christmas, but just haven’t had the down time to sit and sew on the binding.  It’s on now!

My longarm was misbehaving big time on this quilt, so the quilting is quite terrible as I was trying to work out the kinks and figure out what was wrong (the carriage wheel was slipping off the track).  And then I was so pissed off at it that I was just rushing to get it done.  So it’s not my best work ever, that’s for sure.  But it’s for me, so I still love it.  My husband was even impressed by it.  I was surprised he liked it since it was pink!

I knew ever since I saw this quilt and started gathering the fabrics for my quilt that I wanted the brown seaweed print for the binding.  I love it.  It’s such a great contrast.  I had no real pattern for this quilt, just cut 6” squares and placed them in pleasing ways.  …well, I did first draw it out on paper and color in where the solids would be.   I loved the solid squares that were sprinkled through out this quilt and wanted to do the same with mine.  So seldom do I ever do a quilt for myself.  I love having this one all to me.
