Jubilee Finished

Jubilee is finished and on the bed!  The springy colors are so welcome.  We've had a dismal winter in NJ and are just starting to get some warmer weather.


Almost 400 inches of binding; that's a lot of hand sewing to finish.  Karen Thompson did the long arm quilting for me, using a large, meandering feather pattern.  It is perfect for the soft colors in this quilt.

 
This is another of my Fig Tree Harvest projects, using my extensive stash of fabric from Fig Tree & Co.  The fabric I used in Jubilee is from several collections, including Mill House Inn, Buttercup, and Butterscotch & Rose.  The white background is Kona Snow. 
 
The pattern is called Jubilee and is from The Pattern Basket.  I don't usually give my quilts the same name as the pattern but I like the name Jubilee for this quilt.  The pattern came out in 2012, the year of Queen Elizabeth II's diamond jubilee (60 years on the throne).  Part of the block looks like a little crown.


I think I've decided on my next project, but more about that later.

Jubilee is lovely and does fit the feeling of the beginning of spring. I like your choice of quilting design as well. It really is all tied together wonderfully. Do you still have much fabric left in your Fig Tree basket?
