And a closeup, to show the wonderful striped binding fabric I found for it.
I used wool batting and quilted it with Superior Omni thread in a pattern called Verdant. I have fallen in love with wool batting! I don't know how it's processed but it doesn't felt or beard. It's also light and fluffy, much lighter then cotton, which is great for large quilts.
I had a lot of big things happen in my life this summer, some great, some not so great. I cut my finger pretty bad with a rotary cutter, entered a quilt in my local fair and won Best of Show (large quilts), was in a car accident, my daughter got engaged, my dogs got skunked, and I went to Oregon to take a class with Bonnie Hunter! I will post more details later but I'll say now that my finger healed and I wasn't seriously injured in the accident.
