Lumber Jack or Jill Quilt

I have accomplished my One Monthly Goal (OMG) for February which was to quilt and bind this plaid exchange quilt.  You can read the whole story of this quilt here.

I asked my son and husband to help me pick a pantograph at the beginning of the month and they agreed on the Timber pantograph by Melanie J. Caldwell, which is what gave me the idea naming it the  Lumber Jack or Jill quilt.

I used a plaid flannel from my stash to back the quilt, then went shopping for a binding, a little difficult when all the fabrics in the quilt are from at least 20 years ago.  I was looking for a plaid homespun which I thought I would cut on the bias.  I was not able to find any that complimented the colours in the plaids of the quilt, however when I found this Kaffe Fassett woven stripe I was happy.

I think this will be a cuddle quilt for the TV room.  Have a look at some of the other finishes for February and perhaps join us for the March finishing event at Elm Street Quilts.
