Finished Size is 52" x 70"
I'll let you know who it was for after it is delivered.
As far as the fusible batting goes, I loved it! Against all odds as I was prepared to not like it. I wouldn't use on a quilt larger than my big ironing board is wide, but I will use it on smaller quilts and wall quilts.
I quilted all the 4" squares, then through the middle of the zigs and the zags.
I approached each border differently according to their printed designs. I love the star binding.
It was a pleasure not have the pins. It was a bit stiff to start but got much much better as I worked with it. The Steady Betty hand grips really helped move it along.
Susan gave them to me and the package looks like this. I'm sure it is widely available on line.
I'm sure glad I remember to throw a couple of these in - look at all that red.
There were zero pleats on the back which I was a little worried about with the fusible batt. I used this dark red toile'.
My babies are back! I've had the feeder ready for 2 weeks.
Don't mind if I do....
Saturday is the Run for the Roses! I love to watch this springtime ritual on TV which is held in Kentucky (once all the quilters leave).
I'm rooting for Gary Stevens. He is my age at 52 and riding Firing Line. Hey Kelly, don't you love his Pinkadot silk?
How about a pop up giveaway? I'm offering this book of inspiration and creativity, some left overs from this quilt and a chocolate bar to those who are still here.
