Plume Quilt

Well after all the quilting of this week,  I managed to put on one binding yesterday and am so excited because now I can share my finished Plume Quilt!!!  And here it is!!!!

The Plume Quilt  is from the  Fat Quarter Style book by It's Sew Emma  and has been on my list to make ever since I got the book.   It was so much fun to piece and I don't know why I waited to make it for so long because it went together super fast!!!

I used a  Fat Quarter Bundle of Volume II by Sweetwater and love the alternating of red and blacks and the white arrows.   It is just the right amount of contrast to show off the pattern while it still all blends together ;)

I made the quilt a little larger from the pattern so it is just perfect for snuggling up in on a cold day.   And yes, we have had some cold days with no sun (making pictures a little trickier :)

I quilted it with favorite all over swirls.  I played with the scale of the swirls slightly to give it a little more movement and love the overall effect.   And I quilted with a nice deep red which looks awesome on the back as I showed yesterday ;)

And I just love how the red blends in so well, even on the whites and blacks.  So fun and such yummy texture.  I always love me some all over swirls!!

And that is my Plume Quilt.   And if you have been around before, you will notice that this is another red/white/and black quilt which means it is another quilt destined to get an SUU logo and be donated to my Alma Mater.  I love being able to share this passion and have it give back at the same time ;)   So fantastic!!!

I'm off to put on a few more bindings and maybe even quilt one more quilt in an attempt to squeeze in a few more finishes in 2016 :)  It's gonna be fun!!!

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend and a Happy New Year!!!!

Linking up this finish to Amanda's, Sarah's, and Myra's ;)
