Chinese Nachos! Another UFO has been completed and is ready for gifting.
Chinese Nachos is another quilt from the IMT series at the shop. I've always liked this one and I can't tell you why it languished for so long. I completed the top at least 2 years ago and had it draped on the longarm frame for the longest time to figure out how I could quilt it. Nothing came to mind.
I was going to put it on the frame in August but got the customer quilt instead. I finally loaded it during my home quilting retreat last month and spent a day quilting it. Nothing special--just basically doodled all over it; my favorite thing to do with a quilt.
The back is just as wild as the print on the border. I found this on sale online and thought it was perfect. I used it for the binding, too.
Our granddaughter Cheyanne will get this quilt at Christmas. I can't believe I have a Christmas present ready this far in advance! Chey will be almost 15 when she gets it, and I think the colors are perfect for her.
The full photo at the top looks wonky, as do most of my quilts. I need a tripod and a better way to hang quilts in order to take photos of them. It drives me crazy sometimes.
