That is one of my favorites! I first posted about it here and was somewhat unsure how the stitching would turn out or what direction it would take. I have to say….it was a fun quilt to do that started out as a possible “edge to edge” quilting project but it definitely spoke out against that plan! Yes, I, once again, “listened” and this is the result…………………
I stitched this totally as FMQ (Free Motion Quilting) without any markings. Although this is heavily quilted it is still quite soft and will be more so after it’s washed and dried, I’m sure.
The blue fabric appears to be a chambray/shot cotton. I used Invisafil 100wt thread in white and light lilac (not sure of the exact color #) and Connecting Threads Essential Pro Poly (color ‘natural’) in the bobbin. The final size of the quilt is 60”x 68”. It will have the blue as a binding.
A couple of busy days away from the machines and then on to several clients’ quilts……I’m really excited to do them!!!! I’m so glad you stopped by. ‘Click’ on any photo to enlarge it. Any questions, please, leave them in the comments and I will happily address them. Til next time……………………………..
