Finished Fireman Come What May Quilt

Fireman Come What May Quilt

It's finished!  This is the first quilt I've finished in quite a while, in fact the last quilt I finished was in January last year. I'm so glad I finally finished this quilt.  I've had it planned for a number of years after I found the fabric but never actually got around to making it.  Thankfully a birthday is a good reason to knock a quilt off the to do list.

The pattern is Come What May by Jaybird Quilts.  You can read more about my love of this pattern in my last post.

I quilted it in a swirl pattern using navy thread.  I wasn't sold on it when I started but it did grow on me and now I love it!  Though deciding to free motion quilt after a killer arm session at the gym was not the wisest decision I've ever had.  It did make the whole process take much longer than it should have.

It's bound in a print from the same range, with adorable fire hydrants, I think the red sets off the quilt, it's probably my favourite thing about it.

I pieced the backing, I do this quite often, especially when the quilt is just over 42 inches, it makes backing much for affordable.  The main backing print is from Spotlight, I'm not overly in love with it but it is growing on me, it's always the case when you need to finish something you can never find something suitable.

I also added one of my new Spoonflower labels.  I really like these ones, they're a bit more fun than the ones I've used before.

I'm sure the birthday boy will love it, even though it's nearly a month late now but I do get to give it to him in person this way!  I can't wait to see it on his bed next time I visit.
