A Finish: Rolling Waves

I finished binding my Rolling Waves quilt last night (my October One Monthly Goal), and took a few quick photos before trick or treating started tonight. Now I'm writing my post in a chocolate-induced fog. :) 

I love how this one turned out! 

A close-up of the striped binding (and you can see the quilting pretty well here too--I followed the "curves" in the black and in the white sections). The stripe and dots are from Kanvas' All About Color collection. 

The wind caught the quilt during my photoshoot--but then you can see the stripe on the back as well! 

Another look at the quilting--this is a good distance to admire it from. Any closer, and you can see how not-quite-straight it is! 

I'm happy to add this one to the "finished" list, especially since it's one of the commercial patterns I'm offering for sale on Craftsy

Time to finish my Rolling Waves quilt!

My October One Monthly Goal over at Elm Street Quilts is going to be finishing my Rolling Waves quilt! It's hard to see, but I have all the black quilted--I just need to go back and quilt the white sections! I'm echo quilting with my walking foot, so it's not difficult beyond all the twisting and turning of the quilt. I just need to get it done! The binding is the fun stripe that's also on the back--I can't wait to put it on--the perfect finishing touch! 

I used these fantastic dots from the All About Color collection from Kanvas, and I think the next time I make this quilt, I'll do it in blues, like ocean waves.
