pretty practice

If you stopped by last summer you may remember my sweet & sour dilemma.  I thought I could help the pattern emerge with the quilting.  I couldn't.
I will use Rita's tutorial again and pay better attention to fabric colors and print scales.  In the meantime - this quilt provided plenty of pretty practice...

Practice with my camera on a beautiful fall day.

Practice with free motion quilting - which can be seen better here on the back.
And practice with machine binding.
Since this was made with a bit of each print from only one line I worked a cut of the selvage into the back.

I used Quilter's Dream Wool battingLofty, light, & cozy!  This quilt finished at 48x72.  It's like an over-sized shawl.  I can wear it around the house without tripping!

I also got some practice hanging quilts in trees!
Thanks for stopping by.

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday.
