The Swan

My Ugly Duckling quilt is finished, so I guess I'll call it The Swan now:)



There were some last minute changes as the customer wanted more purple on the back and expressed an appreciation for solid binding rather than the stripe I had picked out. Did you know Fabric.com accepted returns? What a lifesaver. I'm very happy with how the the back turned out. I'm glad we made the design changes we did.


I decided pretty early on that I wanted to straight line quilt it instead of free motion. I liked the idea of keeping it neat and smooth. I chose to go through the smaller squares on the diagonal and not cross through the larger squares made by the half-square triangles. Another decision I'm very happy with.


I like the texture and crispness of it.

Honestly, this is one of the best quilts I've made. I'm so very happy with it.
