I had a cramp in my right calf for two days after quilting the Solstice Quilt, seriously.
It seemed I spent as much time ripping out quilting as putting it in. Either it was the free-motion design I didn’t like or the color of thread, but it is D-O-N-E and ready for its first picnic, parade or beach run.
I hadn’t really given thought to what the back would look like with all the different stitching and I gotta say it’s a little crazy, but what-ever, it’s about to eat urban dirt anyway.
We have the family represented, Aquarius, Gemini and Cancer.
I did add pockets to the back corners to weight it down with stones as instructed by Erin at House on Hill Road.
A BIG thanks to my Cottage Quilting Bee friends for bringing it together for me!
I apologize if you don’t see your block. Some where hidden under some fabric I was cutting for sashing and I sadly sliced right through them.
And in case that isn’t enough photos for you, then there’s the pulled from the dryer quilt love.
This quilt will see a ton of use before the end of summer for sure. Now we just need some good weather in Seattle or I’m going to be wearing this quilt more then sitting on it.
I’ll hang it up tomorrow for a better shot.
