It’s done! It’s done!
This quilt is a wedding gift for Anne. Kim pieced the top and will do the binding. My job was quilting and I’ve been procrastinating for a long time. I finally feel that FloMo and I are totally synched so it was time to tackle this one.
You might think that the motif in the little white melon shapes doesn’t really go with the motif in the center. You would be right! I had a different plan for the center that included that little echoed scallop but once I got to the center I came up with another idea all together. I had already quilted 8 of those melon shapes and I wasn’t going to rip them out. In the end I like the effect of the whole thing.
The center section was really quite simple. It’s simple crosshatching but I used this wavy ruler. That made it a lot more interesting (and much less formal) than straight or curved cross hatching.
I used a layer of Warm and White (pre washed and dried) and a layer of poly so that I’d get some great dimension. It shows up really nicely on the back.
Look at that lovely expanse of texture!
I can’t stop looking at the texture on the back.
I should have stopped because I found a few of these. Bummer.
A teeny tiny crochet hook carefully wedged between threads of the backing fabric helped me pull out the stray black and red threads.
This week it will find it’s way back to Kim for binding, labeling and delivery.
