I finished this quilt very early this morning (three o'clock, actually - I just HAD to finish it!). The sun had already risen a little too high in the sky by ten when I got outside to take photos.
You can see it a little better here on the other side of the yard where there is some shade from trees next door.
I pieced the back using Ginseng from Joel Dewberry that I bought from Kathy Mack at Pink Chalk Fabrics. She still had a little when I checked just now, and it's on sale!!!
Kathy's Pink Chalk Studio was one of the first blogs I began reading when I discovered blogs. She has been inspiration and information to me since then. Thanks, Kathy!!
I had never used a home decor weight fabric for backing before, and I have to say - it's going to be hard to go back to regular weight fabric now. It was simply a joy to sew, and so much easier.
Yes, of course, Bruno was right there with me while I was taking these pictures, but he was occupied with other things. Having chickens and feeding birds means that we have an ongoing rodent issue. Bruno is well aware of this problem and he is absolutely sure that he can remedy the situation.
Here's the quilt again, freshly washed, dried and crinkly - in place on the couch. I have to say - I love it much more than I even thought I would.
Now, on to the next project!
Have a great day.
