Again, I had fun with the quilting. A leafy motif seemed apropos for a quilt intended to be used on the porch at the lake. Quilting borders is a challenge for me (lacking practice as I seldom have borders on my quilts) but that doesn't stop me from experimenting.
Isn't this backing (and binding) fabric just perfect for this occasion? The fabric is Frolicking Forest by Heather Rosas.
This one finishes at approximately 50" square, the right size for a little warmth while reading a book on the porch this fall.
Apparently I am in a free motion quilting mood as I have completed quilting three quilts over the last three weeks (a new record for me!). In addition to the new home quilt and this one, I finished quilting another quilt top for the Boston Modern Quilt Guild's Quilts for Boston project. A few weeks ago I quilted this one with a simple loopy meander.
I thought after this quilt I would be done with swirls for a while but I do love the texture of this style so I swirled this second Boston quilt.
Now, off to enjoy this glorious New England summer weather while watching my son recuperate from yesterday's oral surgery when SIX wisdom teeth were extracted! I always encouraged my sons to excel in their endeavors! I wonder what the going rate for the Tooth Fairy in the case of a 25 year old and six extracted wisdom teeth is?
Linking up with crazymom's finish it up Friday party.
