You’ve seen my previous posts outlining the construction of this quilt. It took me a long time to piece the blocks and then it took me a long time to get the quilting finished. There’s straight lines, triangles and other angles that just all sort of came as I quilted. I marked one zig zag with a chalk liner, and after that, I just improvised. I used Aurifil 50wt cotton to for piecing and quilting. Its a very light gray color that blends in on both the front and back of the quilt.
Oh, and my diy-pinmoors that I used to baste the quilt sandwich together worked just great.
The binding is more solid Kona Grass, plus some Kona Iron with just a small piece of Kona Cactus. I cut 2″ strips which turned out to 1/4″ binding all around – completely machine stitched. The back is just solid Kona Coal.
I didn’t have anyone to hold the quilt for photos. JJ was working all weekend. Carol has yoga teacher training. And Miles is just too short. The fence worked out all right for these photos!
