Winter Solstice Progress

Things are tracking along quite nicely with the lap quilt I will gift to Goldie's mum. She returns to China at the end of February so I really don't have time to dawdle.

I have basted - I tried spray but still used pins. 

I pieced a back from a piece of $2 fabric from an op-shop and a scrap strip from another quilt.

And I have straight line quilted by shadowing the ditch. It worked well on the verticals but not so great on the horizontals.

  1. I love the colors in this! And the pattern is fun without overpowering the fabrics. :)

  2. Oooh, I love the op-shop fabric. Great find. Fingers crossed you get it all done in time. :)

  3. Love the muted tones in this and the backing is perfect!

  4. It looks very Wintery/Autumn! Lovely!

  5. Pretty quilt; it has a vintage feel to it!
