It never rains but it pours, so I managed to get two quilt commissions in the same week. This throw is the smaller, and it needed time to travel, so I pushed and got it made before we travel for Thanksgiving. It’s now winging its way to Germany. It was a dull day yesterday when I took these photos, so it doesn’t really sparkle like it should.
This is a requested second rendition of this quilt, which I made late last year, and which sold last month. The cardinals, backing, and binding are the same, and I came pretty close on the gold snowflakes and the poinsettias. In fact, I think I like the snowflake border better, though it lacks some of the
busy-ness energy of the first fabric.
This is quilted with Glitter, New Brites, Rainbows, and Bottom Line from Superior Threads.
I used Pellon 50/50 batting for the first time. It was easy to work with, but I don’t think it gave the quilting much definition. I guess I should have read my own post to see what I used last time.
Now it’s back to the Louisville Cardinal quilt, and some holiday baking. Good luck with your finishes.
