Happy Saturday! This afternoon I had some help to photograph my latest finish...
I quilted with all over diagonal lines, which have created a comfy, crinkly texture. I usually photograph my quilts before washing and drying, but this one was sitting around waiting for its shoot, so I went ahead and washed it. And though I very much love the look of flat, just-basted patchwork, crinkly has its charm too. So inviting.
My backing is made up of a large expanse of Coloring Garden by Anna Maria Horner, complimented by a stack of leftover Cotton & Steel fabrics from the quilt top and the Kona Cadet I used as a border.
Such a nice surprise to find how well this Coloring Garden print coordinates with the From Porto bundle I created for Intrepid Thread!
Finished with dusty gray bindings and my super secure and oh-so-easy zigzag finish, always, always.
So ends another very pleasant quilt journey. Thanks again to Jodi for the half hexagon inspiration! If you'd like to sew your own half hexagon twirly tops by machine, see my tutorial.
Of course, I'm already working on the next quilt and plotting the quilt after that! Plus, I think I'm about ready to start sewing for this baby. Just 14 weeks left. High time I get started, eh? There's much to be sewing...
p.s. Twirly Top is listed now in my Etsy Shop. I hope someone will enjoy!
