Finished binding my DQS7 quilt this morning just in the nick of time. I have an international partner and my mailing deadline was today. Since there was no mail here in the US, I was able to squeak out an extra day! I will pack this up and ship it off to my partner sometime tomorrow.
This dot fabric is From the Swell line by Moda. It has been one of my favorite from that line. I ordered some more to incorporate into other projects. It is out of print and getting harder to find.
This is labeled as my favorite corner of the quilt. No rhyme or reason. Just liked it.
This photo showed the variegated thread the best. You can really see all the colors the thread changed while I was quilting it.
I ended up using a bamboo batting to go along with the natural linen fabric and natural cotton thread. I prefer the thin battings and this was my first time using the bamboo. It seemed very silky to the touch. It was quite pleasing.
I've already started more 1/2 square triangles to use up the charms of aqua red and pinks that were left over. I want to make a larger version so I can see how the pattern radiates.
Hope everyone had a great labor day!
Round 2 of my 5" Fabric Noodle Strip Swap starts Sept. 11 over at Swap-Bot. We had a lot of fun the last round and I decided to add an international leg this time. Please wander over and join us if you haven't already. Membership is FREE.
