I finished the Vintage Summer cheater quilt last night. I love the magic that happens when I wash and dry a new quilt. It goes from being a fairly flat piece to a soft, crinkly quilt. The quilting shows up nicely, and the soft shadows and folds make it look like an heirloom. And all my little tucks in the backing become practically invisible!

I love how this turned out. I wanted to take some nice photos outside today, but it's raining, so here is a sneak peek. The quilting is simple, 1/4 inch on either side of the "seams" of the patchwork blocks. The backing is also simple, but the blue print with flowers and birds was one of my favorites in the line. More later!
