Finish - Wild Thing Whirligig

Even though I hosted a Thanksgiving dinner last night for my husbands family I had a pretty productive week and I managed to sew the binding onto my whirligig quilt and also another which I will post about on a separate post.

I previously posted about this quilt WIP here and here.

This quilt turned out pretty well. My favorite part is actually the back of it, and the best part is I got to use a large amount of a fabric that has been in  my stash for a long time. When I was squaring down my blocks I trimmed a few too small, oops, so I did something a little special on the back!

I used Camille Roskelley's Wild Thing pattern for this quilt. The pattern was easy to follow. I used 4 Benartex Sampler charm packs for this quilt.

I quilted this quilt with Daisies and Loops pantograph by Sue Schmeiden. I used a rose variegated King Tut thread. I love the panto on this one.

This quilt finished at 62 x 78 inches; this is a great throw size for my family since we are all close to or over 6 feet tall! This quilt will reside on our green family room couch for now; my kids are already using it.
