New Finish

I'm not sure how this happened, but I have managed to get this blog on a list of top 100 quilting blogs.  Here's some others if you want good reads...http://blog.feedspot.com/quilt_blogs/

 I finished my last custom quilt for a little while.  It was made by Carol, and will be shipping home very soon.  It is quilted with a wool batting, and 60wt ivory thread.  This is a great thread for dense stitching, as it is extremely fine.  With as much applique as is on the quilt, I didn't want to overwhelm the quilt with thread.
 The lighting the day I took these was a tad flat, but the texture is really pretty.  The square on point secondary pattern is very prevalent.
 Believe it or not, the hardest thing on this quilt were the pesky little 9-patches.  They are so thick, that it was challenging quilting over and around them.
 Backs on quilts like this are always gorgeous, and this one is no exception.  It has a soft ivory solid that just shows off the texture.
In just 1 week, I will be enroute to Springfield, IL for MQX.  My classes are sold out, and I am as prepared as I can be, short of packing a suitcase.  My new quilt is on a trailer being transported to the show.  As soon as judging is done, I will post several photos of this new quilt so all can see.  Fingers are crossed that she does well.
