On this the last day of 2013 I thought that I would share another almost finish. I played with my new Babtist Fan Loricles boards last night and completed the quilting on my Fall Log Cabin quilt. This quilt was so easy to quilt since it was so flat; and, I would love to take all the credit but I have to credit the fact that this quilt was almost entirely die-cut and it is just so much easier to piece when the cutting is correct - funny that LOL!
I am quite happy with how it turned out and I love the texture the Baptist Fan quilting adds. Since this will be a bed quilt I didn't want to add too much quilting to it which would stiffen it up. Too bad it's not fall any longer or this would be going on the bed ASAP!
Here's a close-up of the quilting. I finally got the spacing down by the end of the quilt and I know that this template will be used and used and used by me :-)
I used 40 weight FilTec Glide thread top and bobbin in Warm Grey. In retrospect I think a shade of darker grey thread would have been a better choice but hey! This is a scrap quilt destined for the bed and not a show and done is better than perfect, right?
I pulled this beautiful batik wide-back out of my stash and I think it is a perfect fall-looking backing for this quilt. I was also able to pull a Warm and Natural batting from my stash and it worked perfectly for this quilt. I love it when I can pull from my stash :-)
Happy New Years Eve everyone!
