The first week was all about choosing fabrics. After the l o n g winter we had I was in the mood for a bright springtime palette. Most of these fabrics came from my growing (!) stash.
Because this quilt is so bright and sunny I decided to use a thinner batting. I experienced lots of tension issues and twice spent considerable time picking out quilting stitches. Finally I decided to copy Amy. I used my walking foot and quilted straight lines with an expanded zigzag style stitch.It was smooth sailing from then on.
All the frustration of quilting came out in the wash. Now it's all soft and crinkly and a perfect summer weight.
And looking pretty in a field of early fall sunflowers!
