My Vintage Rouge is quilted and ready to bind

I sent my quilt top off to be longarm quilted a few weeks ago. I knew I'd never have it finished in time for the holidays if I quilted it myself!

I wanted a simple all over design. (referred to as edge to edge quilting)
I didn't want a Holiday pattern because I may choose to display this quilt in my home thru the winter months.

The edge to edge design is called "Windy" and it's just large gentle swirls and curls.

Now it's ready for binding.

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Although I appreciate the intricate designs and details of machine quilting, sometimes simplicity is the best way to go. Love the swirls and curls quilting on Vintage Rouge!

  8. You chose a pretty quilting design. I was wondering if the quilt was strictly for holiday use or year round. Could be either.
