A happy middle of the week to ya! This quilt is enroute back to it's Iowan owner, as I type this. I have finished off several others since this, but they'll get shown in due course. There's a large-ish batik quilt on my machine right now that is taxing my brain a little bit. Or it could be something else.
This quilt is only about 24" square, but the darn little thing took many hours on account of all that stitching. It has a wool batting, which helps to show off that pretty applique, and the relief of the quilting. I used a soft yellow (kind of maize colored) thread - 50 wt So Fine I think. I love to make the large mass of blank space carry alternate quilting patterns - hence the square on point that I added.
