Bubble Wrap in the Garden

Woo hoo! I finished this quilt. Just put the final stitches in the binding last evening. I still need to block it however. It measures approximately 45" square.


Here's the back. I like how the extra blocks dress it up and almost give it a reversible look. I took the photo without a flash so you could see the quilted texture better.


I quilted it in an overall circular design. I love how this looks. After the quilting was completed, I tossed the quilt into the washer and dryer to bring up the texture.


Every time I look at it, it reminds me of bubble wrap. Here I just had to see if it would pop.


The fabric is part of a line called Garden Song by Nancy Halvorson. Since the completed quilting looks like bubble wrap, I dubbed the quilt Bubble Wrap in the Garden. It sounds sort of like the name for a song, doesn't it? Come on, hum a few bars with me!
