I used Mountain Mist Cream Rose batting and unbleached muslin for the backing.
The top is very linear with the exception of the basket handles so I thought the quilting should contrast with that. I am quilting circles in a free form design. I am not marking the circles I am doing it by eye. I didn’t want them to be perfectly measured and even because that is not in keeping with the free form piecing in the top.
I am using 12 weight Aurifil thread and a size 5 embroidery needle for the quilting.
Here are some pictures …I took these in the house at night so the colors aren’t so good but you can get the idea.
It goes pretty fast so I hope to be done in a few weeks. I have so many other projects that i am working on that I told myself I would wait to quilt this one……but I couldn’t resist.
Meanwhile the garden continues to develop more every day! Here are a bunch more pictures (click pictures to enlarge)
The weeds grow as fast as the flowers so I need to get to work
Happy Gardening and Happy Quilting
