I've got a lot of finishes to get through this holiday weekend. My DQS7 quilt is all quilted and ready to be bound this evening. I used a variegated natural thread and liked the way you can see a subtle difference in the coloration. I decided to follow the linen zig zag pattern with line quilting. I thought it would make the prints pop.
I loved how this turned out and am planning on making another. I have enough of the same fabric to make a larger size throw. I just might take on that project this Winter.
I had a few problems along the way with the linen fabric because it was so thick. It threw my piecing off in a few places. I had to press all the seams open in the back to allow for the bulk. All in all I enjoyed working with the new fabric. I'm glad I ordered some after many recommendations by friends.
Here are some photos of the process...
Other things that need to be finished up...
Remember when I picked 5 additional winners for my July Birthday Giveaway!?! Well, I'm still in the process of putting together boxes for those 5 folks and will be sending them off shortly. Think Halloween everyone!
