Strings and Threads
That's the name I am giving the wedding quilt for my son and his wife. Why? .....it is made up of strings and threads only (not counting the batting....lol)
It's been a long time coming. What with issues with my long arm (shame on me for not getting to fixing that quicker), work, illnesses, broken arm, work, baby shower and baby born to our family, wedding shower, baby, wedding, baby......(sigh), makes me tired thinking of it all, but I sure have enjoyed that baby and the wedding was great, too. Next year is going to be a better year for sure.. No babies being born and no more weddings in the family
Anyways, you can read more about the planning of this quilt here
Here is a picture of the backing.
Love this fabric.
Here's a close up of the front and back.
I did a wavy line for the quilting and I think it softens up the hard lines on the front and for the backing I think it gives a wood grain look to the trees.
We will be delivering the quilt tomorrow. So glad I could finish this off, even though it is after the wedding, I still got it done before the end of the year.
Now I can start out 2014 with my pile of quilts that "aren't deadline motivated".
Looking forward to the New Year!
