A mid week finish

If you in that group of peeps that's easily offended by the word, thought, or sight of 'BATIKs'

please look away now, I make no apologies, in fact, I embrace living dangerously  :) 

Finally I got the binding sewn down on my Double Delight quilt, a Bonnie K Hunter mystery quilt ...


made completely out of batiks (on the front)

AND

completely from stash!


on this quilt I tried out the free form baptist feathers, a mixture of baptist fans with feathers, and in true free form quilting, they go in opposite directions in each row of quilting ...





you can see how it plays so well with all the colours in the quilt, remain more about texture, and less obvious in the overall look of the quilt .... lovely


I love this pattern :) 



and I know you always want to see the back ...

Quilt is about 80" x 90", top made in 2008/2009, quilted much earlier this year and now done!
That's a UFO off my list!  and a little dent in the Winter Stitching List!

tomorrow ... November will be done for another year ... sigh

Your stash must be a sight to behold! A quilt that size, and all from fabric you already had? Woww.

I love the texture that your quilting added and yes, I'm one of those who always wants to see the back too, so thanks for showing it.
