Yes, I did it – quilted the Knotweed sandwich by machine. First try, instant success. Or just beginner’s luck. 😉
Remember I wrote that I was maybe going to quilt it if I had some matching batting in my stash? Well, I needed 62 x 83 cms. I went through the leftover pieces from my latest finishes and guess what? The remaining piece of batting from Protection was exactly the right size – 63 x 89 cms. Weird. That project really seems to work as a guardian as far as my efforts to finish my WIPs and UFOs are concerned.
As I had quite an amount of the yellow fabric, I also used it for the back and binding. It was just wide enough to fit lengthwise. And there’s still some left.
I quilted some tilting lines that echo the stalks in the center piece, just enough to hold it together. Instead of marking I quilted along some masking tape stuck to the surface.
Another one off the list. 🙂
