It is time once again for Amy's Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival. I decided to enter one of my quilts that reminds me of fall and winter (judging by the picture).
This is my Orange Crush Quilt made from a Bonnie Hunter Mystery. I was not crazy about the small half square triangles and some fabric I was using that seemed to stretch out of place very easily. I finished the quilt top and then let it sit for quite awhile before I quilted it.
If you look closely, you can see that I added piping before the final border.
Then I got the big idea to layer two layers of polyester batting together. Not the smartest thing to do when quilting using a domestic sewing machine. But the results were well worth the trouble. It is the softest, squishiest quilt that I have made.
And everywhere I go people compliment me on it.
I actually began making it for my son but he didn't care for the zebra print I put in it.
Too bad. Now it belongs to my husband. And he doesn't share very often.
It did go on the bed in the guest room for awhile. But mostly, it is used as a throw when he is watching TV.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
