Hangin' Out

The finished quilt, Boxed Stripes #3, hanging from the plant hooks on my porch. Chumley gets in the photo too.
By popular vote, I decided against the border and went with pieced, piped binding.(Don't try this at home). It was not easy. All those seams! I used this tute from Color Me Quilty, and it looked simple enough. I may try this again without the pieced parts.

I am still in love with the straight line quilting. The rod pocket below is merely pinned in place. I was in a hurry to photograph this before the sun changed position.

I rarely, if ever, show the back, but this fabric makes me think of men's pajamas, and I have to laugh. In this photo I have an invisible white glove lady showing off the back. (Hate that. The art is on the front.)

In conclusion, I managed to force mitered corners too. Ugh.
BTW, what clinched my decision on eschewing the borders was this comment from Ann from MD:
I think it is finished. Wouldn't it look great hanging on the wall of a sunny beach house?

I couldn't agree more!



  1. I really do like how this came out, and agree it is a bright, sunny wall piece for sure!

  2. Absolutely love this quilt! LOVE your work!

    Thanks for the shout out.

  3. Love how this turned out Mel - binding w/piping is the perfect finish. I usually add piping, but in a separate step - doesn't take long, and really keeps my quilts perfectly square. I wonder how you would compare working by piecing vs. fusing? I love these boxes - they look like they have legs, like the baba yaga. So cool.

  4. Love it. Good way to start my day with this great shot!

  5. BEAUTIFUL and just in time for Spring!

  6. This turned out great! The colors are wonderful.

  7. Clever cleverer cleverest!

  8. This is one of my favorite quilts of yours! It is beautiful.

  9. Love the colours and love the design. A happy quilt.
