A few years ago I stitched up this pretty railfence using Petal by Aneela Hoey. I love the color combinations in this collection of prints. I think the pattern is from the Missouri Star Quilt Company and is one of Jenny Doan's Friday video tutorials.
After quilting I auditioned MANY fabrics for the binding and finally settled on a flange binding. I love how this navy and white stripe frames the quilt. The contrast of the soft pink just works so well.
As there is yellow in this quilt, I decided to go with a yellow backing. Yellow is one of my favorite colors and I use it often. It is a ray of sunshine and a happy color in my mind. I quilted this top very densely on my domestic sewing machine. About 10" into the quilting I did seriously wonder what I was thinking. I went through many bobbins of thread. I do love the texture though.
You can see the diamonds nicely in this photo.
I am super happy to have ticked a UFO off the list of many quilt tops waiting to be quilted. Now to find the next one to quilt.
Thank you for visiting.
