Late Finish for March Quilt
This is slightly late, I admit, but is now finished. The flimsy was made in March, but it's taken until now in April to get it finished.
It's a little less than 60" square - so quite big blocks - but all made without purchasing anything extra.
The quilting is a large stipple with occasional flowers dotted along the stipple lines. I like how fast meandering is for quilting - it took less than an hour and a half to quilt this. I tend to add small motifs when I want a bit more interest. As I was quilting with white thread the flowers are mainly on the darker fabric.
I was pleased that I managed to remember to get the stripes in the darker fabric to march neatly across - I'm not great at using directional fabric, so it was great to actually think about the directions before I sewed everything together! Perhaps my years of quilting are finally starting to pay off!
