Finished the Peppered Cotton Top

I finished the quilt top today.  ( I’ll try to post about how I cut the pieces in the next few days)


It finished at about 75 x 85 if I did my math right….I’ll measure it before I layer it for quilting

The lighting today shows how the fabric looks different at different angles …the triangles are all rotated so the straight of grain ends up on the outside edge of the hexagon.  With the rotation the weave is in different orientations and makes for the variation in colors .

A few days before Easter I entered a drawing on Facebook.    The random drawing was a few days ago and I won!    A case of  Dream Green Batting.  Fed Ex delivered it yesterday.    Thank you Quilters Dream!


One of these will go in the top I just finished.

Teddy had guard his bone so I wouldn’t put batting on top.


I have to decide on the quilting and backing …..More to come

Happy Quilting

    I think you’re going to go blind quilting that one, either by hand or machine! It looks wonderful, and so does all that batting.

    You deserve to win that batting – good for you! I really like your peppered stripes. It’s amazing how the values change with the lighting. I like how the stripes match up. Great job!
