This was a very satisfying finish. I pieced the top last winter in AZ. It took me forever to decide how to quilt it.
I think this is the first time that I’ve combined had and machine quilting like this. It won’t be the last!
I love the effect, but I enjoyed the process even more. Because it was all machine quilted first, I didn’t need to baste or even use a hoop.
I used a facing rather than a binding on this and just used unbleached muslin for the backing.
My quilt inspector gave it her seal of approval.
I think I’ll take this one back to AZ.
Have a great day!
