First Quilting Project of the Season.........
As ya'll may or may not remember, I love to hand quilt. As the weather turns colder and gets gloomier, nothing makes me happier than to kindle a fire in the fireplace and sit down to work on my quilt.
Here's the baby quilt I made last season. And here is the post where you can see it finished. A few weeks ago I dug around in my stash to see what I wanted to make this winter. I've got a pieced top that Mom did for me, but I don't want to work on it just yet. I found this stamped design that I've had in there for years, so I decided this would be my first quilting project this season.
I like the film strip style of the pictures. They alternate two pictures in each strip.
I'm backing it with some really lovely, soft, peach flannel. This is also the first quilt in which I'm using cotton battting. Every other quilt I've made I've used polyester batting, but recently I've seen cotton, so I'm very excited to try it. So far it's quilting really nicely.
It shouldn't take too long to finish, if I work on it steadily. I've no idea what I'll do with it once it's done, but I'm sure I'll figure something out!
