Scrappy Goodness all quilted

ahhhhhh, it felt so good to take this one off the frame.  I'll post the link for the pattern again when I finish the binding.  This one has over 100 different fabrics, all green, blue, reds and browns.  Hobbs Polydown batting, Premo Soft thread on top, magna glide bobbins were used.  This was my first time using the Magna Glide bobbins and I have to say I LOVE THEM!!  I used over 24 bobbins of thread on this 90 x 108 quilt.  It took me 3 weeks to get this one quilted.  Ok I'm ready for some easy quick pantographs now!









UPDATE:  Feathered finish Friday.  The binding is done.  The quilt is washed dried and ready to ship!!  I love how the thread just sinks in after it's washed.  This was a bit big for my dyer so we have a couple of crinkles in there, but I'll let it hang over the stair well over night and all should be good!!  Ahhhhh, now finished really feels good :)

  13. Awesome! Curious because I haven't used that bat - does it have that much loft in the raised areas or did you use two layers?

  14. No wonder it took you three weeks to quilt that, it would have taken me three years. Excellent.
