Here's an example of these colors in nature. I know what you are thinking... 'those colors are natural?'
Those were photos I took in October of this year. That is when I made the top. I finally got to basting it over the weekend. I used Hobbs 80/20 fusible. It's heavier and stiffer than what I'm used to with the bamboo, but the quilted lines show up very nicely with this.
I particularly love where the groovy lines intersect!
This was one of my rare moments in quilting a quilt where I really think the motif adds nicely to the style of the pieced top, and the mixed bag of fabric designs. Sometimes I feel I overdo it, or make a wrong thread color choice. This one seems to sing, and the binding - makes it very festive too. ; )
|A Groovy Autumn Blanket. Finished just a couple days before the first day of Winter! ;)|
Just my luck! I never measured the binding strips. I just cut & pressed & stitched it on. There was about ten inches of binding left over. Whew! Now I can work on hand stitching it down on the backside over the next couple of days. That will feel goooooood! I love handstitching and so far it doesn't bother my hands at all. TYPING does. ;P
Enjoy the week everyone!
