Blue Spring Rain – Almost Done!

Sunday was a super productive day! We went for a 4 mile walk, got our veggie garden planted for the year (I am already looking forward to the delicious fresh meals from the backyard…), and I finally finished quilting Blue Spring Rain! Yay! I had to pick out another tuck or two this afternoon, but I got it done and I am really happy with the way it looks. I was hoping it would look like water dripping down a pane of glass, and I think it just might capture the effect I was hoping for!

I was also able to get the binding sewn down to the front and half of the whip-stitching done on the back. I think I only need to work an hour or so more and this quilt will be getting its first wash. I am really looking forward to how it crinkles up and looks afterwards! 🙂

I also have to say that the pop of blue for the border really makes this quilt pop. It even dresses up my very boring backing!
