I finished my son's quilt a few days before he arrived. (Although as I took the pictures I realized there were some loose threads in the back...so it is only functionally finished.)
It is the Treasure Map from Pixel Play by Emily Cier. It is supposed to be twin sized, but I shunk everything in half and decided in the beginning it would be ok if it wasn't perfect. (It also meant that I had many squares with a finished size if 1/2" by 1/2".)
Now, I've had tons of time to stare at the quilt in its finished state, but there are so many issues. Since the blocks are small lining them up was hard. The smallness also created a ton of very noticeable wrinkles when quilting, I ran out of ocean and ordered more, but the dye lot is different...and easily seen in the 3am lighting that I have. The quilt is not square. I missed quilting a few small places.
But...it was made with love and has already gotten a lot of use. I'm happy with how it turned out, overall.
I quilted the water with ocean currents (or swirls) and the land with pebbles. The outside border has a cross-hatch that pretends to be straight. I was going to do some cool tree trunks and leaves but with all the wrinkles decided that I shouldn't.
The back is a light blue minky. It's fun to see the different colored threads on the back.
There are several more quilts that I really like in the book...but it'll probably be a while before I'm ready to do another.
Joining up with LAAF, whoop-whoop Friday and Finish it up Friday.
