Charity Quilt

Here are some photo’s of a cute little charity quilt I quilted yesterday.  I had a Dr’s appointment  which gobbled up a lot of my work day, so with what was left I loaded a quilt for the next day & quilted a small charity for guild.

The pattern is Espalier by Hermione Agee. The batting is a light weight cotton. The backing is flannel. I did slightly different colors thread to match the fabrics. The top thread is a pink taupe color to match the background fabric. In the bobbin I chose a darker cream to go with the toile print backing.  This didn’t come with a binding so I dug through my fabrics and found a shade of green that I think works well with both sides of the quilt.

This is a photo of the charity quilt before quilting, while loaded on the machine.


After quilting off the quilt machine.


Here is a shot of the binding that’s applied to the front but not yet sewn to the back side.


I couldn’t resist this shot. I love toile prints. I’m not sure what’s going on there but they sure dress well for being in the woods.
