Reversible Embroidered Quilt

This quilt was started with a class I took back in 2008 through a (now closed) local Bernina dealer. The class and project were meant to highlight machine embroidery as a quilting option as well as to teach a quilt-as-you-go method of construction.

I actually completed the quilt itself back in 2008. I just didn't get the binding on it until December 2015. :P

To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of this quilt. But I learned a good number of things through the making, including that I'm really just not a fan of quilt-as-you-go. I also like more quilting in my quilt. I learned that machine binding can be an awesome thing (and nowadays, I machine bind many of my quilts... though I don't use the exact technique that was taught in this class). Also-- machine embroidery, while lovely, is really boring to do.

I plan to donate this one, so no label.

While it is maybe not my cup o' tea, the colors are happy and overall, I think it is a pretty quilt.

I am happy that the quilt is finally finished!
