The sun came out and the temps are warming. It is so exciting that I grabbed my latest finished quilt and went to the park for some photos.Because I did not add batting and backing to the muslin foundation pieced top, I love it from the back as well as the front!
The bright scrappy spider-web quilt will be used as a table cloth so I decided not to add batting to the already heavy top. It is long and narrow: 63"x105".
The seams were top-stitched down from the back to keep everything nice and flat. I'm looking forward to picnicking on this cheerful table top!
A black and white striped binding is one of my favorite finishes to a bright color scheme. This time I attached the binding to the back first and then machine stitched it down on the front.
My friend, Vick,i and I worked on the web blocks together over the course of about a year. I showed you her quilt top here and will show case it again when she gets it all finished.
The pattern for Pop Stars can be found in Material Obsession 2, by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Felke. I love so many quilts in that book!
This type of finish would work great for a summer weight bed quilt also. Hmmm...do I really want to use Pop Stars as a tablecloth?!
Either way, it won't be boring, that's for sure!
