I was hoping for a nicer day and greener grass to get a photo of my completed April challenge quilt. I had to be content that the snow has finally disappeared from under my clothes lines.
This quilt is the largest that I've machine quilted -- 84" x 84". I kept the quilting to a minimum -- straight lines 3" apart only one way. It feels great to have this one completed -- and again I'm thankful to Judy for this challenge!
I backed the quilt with several pieces of brushed homespun and bound it with a heavier red flannel -- all pieces found in my stash.
I was worried it would end up being heavier than I wanted, but I was pleased with the weight of it -- it's quite soft and snuggly!
The May challenge will be to work on this quilt which was made using The Yellow Brick Road pattern. It needs to be quilted and bound. I'll have to browse around on Flikr and see if I can get some inspiration for quilting it. I may have to finally force myself to try some free motion quilting -- I've been avoiding learning how to do that!
