Last Link-A-Finish Friday for 2013

Here's my last Link-A-Finish Friday for 2013.

When I first brought this quilt home from our LQG I didn't think it would be very special.  Now that it is done, it's going to make a nice charity quilt for someone.  It's very soft and fluffy.  I love the way my longarm quilting turned out on it.

It measures about 70" x 85" or so.  I did something new with this binding.  I made my binding with 2" strips and folded them in half after sewing them together in one long piece.  This time I sewed the binding to the back of the quilt first.  When I turned the binding I turned the whole thing and machine sewed it down.  You can't see the binding from the back of the quilt.  Worked out great for a binding that I felt was good for the front but really didn't match the back.  I will use this method again.  The thick binding makes a little frame around the quilt and because it is kinda chunky, it adds to the puffy, soft look.  I do not know who made this quilt top and donated it to our LQG, but I know somebody will be happy with this quilt.

Here's the back.  I really like the way the quilting showed up on the back!  Click on the pic and you can see more detail.  I also really like the red thread.

I'm happy to link up with Richard and Tanya Quilts for the Link-A-Finish FRIDAY.
I'm also linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts:

You've really made a pretty quilt out of that with your quilting! I'm sure someone is going to feel very lucky to have it. Well done!
