Fall Festival

Fall Festival, our 2017 Humble Quilts quiltalong, is complete and ready for fall!!!

I asked Sharon to keep the quilting simple, just like the quilt.





I added the wool eye on the turkey after the quilting. After adding sharp star buttons on my Flags quilt I knew I didn't want to do that again. 

Because this was a large quilt, I opted for a wide backing to keep it simple. 
I also found that terrific fall colored fabric in my stash to make the binding. 
So thrilled to have this one complete.

I hope your week is going well.

  6. I don't think there is anything simple about this interesting quilt. There is so much to look at and enjoy. The quilting is a lovely accent .

  7. Ohhhh Lori, que bonito te ha quedado. El acolchado un acierto. Intento imaginar si está hecho con una aguja doble o con aguja de dos ojos. Precioso en su conjunto. Un beso

  19. Lovely quilt Lori. Was the quilting done with a twin needle? I do that meandering quilting on my Bernina, but yours looks like it has been done twice, which I dont think would have been the case.
