Make It Right - Color Me Textured

I did it! I finished by Make It Right Challenge quilt at 10:30 p.m. last night, which was an hour and a half before the deadline. I decided to name my quilt Color Me Textured. I'm quite pleased with the results.

I used "Faux Piped Binding". Check out my tutorial, if you're interested.

Of course I used Aurifil Thread. Just love this stuff!
Besides using every bit of the Right Angles panel, I used Pure Elements Lemonade, Linen White and Moonstone.

I used Quilters Dream Puff batting and my method for pin basting using 1"x3" boards
The quilt ended up to be 54" x 63", with lots and lots of texture.

I'm planning on giving this quilt to my husband for his birthday on Sunday. I hope he'll enjoy it on cold winter nights watching TV.

I'm linking up today with Richard and Tanya Quilts for Finish Friday, Quokka Quilts for TGIFF and The Free-Motion Quilting Project for FMQ Friday. Of course I entered my quilt into the challenge and I'm shamelessly asking for your "Pins", once they have it posted. Click here to check out all of the quilts.
