In my last post I spoke about basting a fall tumbler quilt. Well, we had a rainy weekend so I managed to get a bunch of quilting done. Actually, I finished quilting it.
Since this is a scrappy quilt made out of all kinds and quality of fall fabrics I decided to just go ahead with an allover swirly design. I used an apricot color for the quilting. I chose a burgundy with fall leaves on it for the binding.
I wish the trees in the background looked a bit more fallish! I will take a picture again when the leaves have changed.
I pieced the backing on this quilt. I had a charming scarecrow fabric which I thought would be a great addition to the fall quilt.
They are so cute! I am so thrilled with this finish. It feels lovely and soft and I am looking forward to snuggling on the sofa under this one.
I have chosen the next top to quilt and have started rolling the layers onto the pipes. I need to piece the backing and then the basting fun can start again. My batting is large enough to get a wall hanging out of it too. Will baste that one also and then I can get busy with the quilting.
Thank you for visiting and have a super, productive sewing week.
