Finish It Up Friday ~ Rolling Stone

And the answer is…..NO! I cannot quilt only one fan per day. Quilting is addictive. Sigh…..

Anyway, I have a finished quilt to show for it. It is small, only about 53” square.

I used these for marking my fans. You can read about my experiment with these here.

You can see in the next photo that I hadn’t washed it yet.

I also used a blue/gray quilting thread from YLI.

I bought a box of various colors of this at an estate sale a few months ago. I had never used it before, but now I will! I love this stuff!

And here are the after washing photos. The marks completely washed out. Love that texture!

Sigh… lovely!

I used Hobbs 80/20 batting this time. It was what I had on hand. I don’t usually use anything with poly in it when quilting a vintage top. But it did turn out beautifully and it is very soft and snuggly.

Of course, I’m already trying to decide what I will hand quilt next.

Have a great day!

    I’ve always loved the rolling stone design but haven’t made one yet. Yours is beautiful! The fabrics you chose makes it look very vintage.
