Fall-gyle - Finished!

Another finally finish.


Started in the fall of 2011, with the Argyle Quilt Along on from the blue chair. Her instructions were clear, but I didn't have the skills {or the patience} to do it right.

{Have I raked yet? Nope!}

I used the fabric I had, so I went off pattern, and I had no idea how big it was going to be. It ended up 70" square, but it still looks wrong. It should have been longer than it is wide...like the diamonds.


Quilted in a nice argyle-esque pattern. Alas, I don't remember any of the fabrics and the selvages are long tossed. The backing is a burgundy flannel and the binding is some fall-ish print from Jo-Ann's.


And here's where it went so wrong. Check out those LOVELY matching seams. Like, not even close. Some I could fix, but some were hopeless. So eventually I gave up.
So it's done, but I don't really like it. Maybe I'll like it next fall when it comes out of storage...
