This is my second finish of 2011 and unlike my first finish I did a decent amount of work on this quilt this year. I quilted, bound and buried all the threads this past week. I love what Oh Fransson is doing on hers but since I’ve never tried free motion quilting I wasn’t game to try it for the first time on a quilt I love so much! Instead I opted for what many consider an old stand by but I’ve never actually tried before- stitching in the ditch.
I really like how it came out, the quilt is so fabulous
That I didn’t want the quilting to detract from the “map appearance” of it.
I have one more quilt that has already been pieced and basted to finish before I really dig into my WIP pile. But the sense of accomplishment these are giving me is a really motivator to tackle the rest :)
