Son's quilt finished

Two months behind schedule - son's quilt is finished, it is king-sized plus! I first began the project here. While I did the piecing and binding, a long armer Jennifer Strauser at dizzyquilter did the quilting. My task was to avoid using floral prints at my son's request and to use as many scraps as possible.

I have come up with my own unique pieced element - the Shooting Gallery Border. One of my happy mistakes.
I have learned so much in the 3+ years I have been quilting. When I began I learned to piece the blocks (somewhat) and called that quilting (when it really was just piecing). 

I have learned about large scale and small scale fabrics - ruining a lovely large scale cat print fabric in the process but salvaged it to survive in another creation. 

I have learned more about sewing machines, how to clean and maintain them, the different processes involved with each machine and now what to look for. My recent purchase of a vintage Singer is now up and running. I am currently quilting a country fall cubicle cover. Layout shown on this post. My cubicle covers could also be used as table runners. I like to hang them up to showcase them.

Linking up with Cynthia at quiltingismorefunthanhousework.

9/1 update to linkup with Amanda Jean at crazymomquilts for Finish It Up Friday.

Slightly less than $10 thrifting total included a Real Tree camoflauge shirt, a Nick & Mo colorful embroidery embellished sweater and a painted wineglass.

Leaving you with my newest favorite song. I hadn't listened to country in many years, preferring to listen to other genres, but Maren Morris has called me back into the fold. 
Do you like country d├ęcor or listen to country music?
