My July UFO is finished and here it is on my brother's sofa! Wow...that's bright!
You can see the red backing, which I also used for the binding.
I quilted lots of leaves on this quilt...
some big, some small, some with veins, some are really wonky.
It was really fun to quilt and I spent approx. 6 hours on the machine quilting.
I especially like how the leaves turned out in the gold border.
I decided to try out a different batting called "Legacy Natural Blend" in this quilt, which is an 80/20 batting from Pellon. It quilted up as nicely as the Warm and Natural that I usually use. I did not have many issues with thread breakage or pleating on the back. I wonder how this batting will wash?
I like how the Warm and Natural shrinks a bit and gives the quilt an antique look, so I hope this batting will do the same thing.
Hop over to A Lovely Year of Finishes to see the other UFO projects that were completed this month.
