Blogger's Quilt Festival October 2012

I think I made it in the nick of time!

When I saw Amy from Amy's Creative Side was starting up again,
I knew I had to finish my Facade quilt,
which was a workshop hosted by 

So here is the big reveal!

I am SO in love with this quilt.
The quilt has been done for quite some time.
I just didn't have the binding on.
(bad me!)
So last night I was running a sweat shop in my sewing room.

All I could hear while I was working on it
was Larry the Cable Guy saying,
"GET 'ER DONE!"
And I did!

I used Julie Herman's tutorial
(as always!)
for the binding.
If you're ever interested in using her
perfect binding tutorial
you can find it 

I LOVE it because it doesn't leave you with any bulk when your binding
ends come together.
You can't even tell where they stop and start.

So,
between Rachel and Julie
I made this little beauty.
Thanks, Gals!!

The fabric is Ruby by Bonnie & Camille.

If you are interested in the Facade pattern,
you can find it here.

Here's a close up of the awesome quilting.

And the quilt spread out in all it's glory.

And for fun,
I thought Mr. O'Lantern would like to snuggle a bit.
(excuse the dead flowers....it's fall!)

I love the lightning bolt effect combined with such pretty colours and fabrics! It's like Thor's sister turned out to be Betty Crocker. It's gorgeous.
