Hello Blog Friends,
I know that I missed my post for last week, but I have a good excuse...I've been busy working and working on Northwoods, and it is finished! And in the nick of time. I finished the binding Friday night about 10:00 pm, and the wedding was yesterday at 1:00. Whew!
The quilt is made of the most luxurious flannels I have ever worked with. They are from the "Winter in the Pines" collection by Holly Taylor for Moda. These flannels are fantastic!
I chose straight line quilting patterns for this quilt for several reasons...1)Time. I needed to get it done quickly in order to finish it on time. 2) I didn't want to take away from the swirling star patterns in the blocks. 3) I decided to do a minimum of quilting on it, to preserve what I call the "cuddle-ability" of the quilt. This is very important...it is going to newlyweds, after all (wink, wink).
Here is the finished quilt:
Here are Heather and Cort at their wedding. All my love and best wishes for a long and happy life together!
And, of course, I have the next project lined up. Actually, it is a series of smaller projects. More on this next week....
