Sometimes I Amaze Myself...

I never would have guessed that this old quilt top would turn out so pretty! It is off the machine now, waiting to have the thread tails trimmed, the binding put on, and, oh, yes, it needs a bath after spending the last forty years or so in a plastic bag!


This was not my favorite quilt to work on for many reasons, but now that the quilting is done, I'm singing, "You Are My Sunshine, My Only Sunshine..."

The Quilters' Dream Puff backing was a good choice to fill in the saggy areas of the quilting.


The backing is white muslin, and it looks very textural and frothy like a wedding cake!



This quilt has a twin that is waiting for the same treatment...but I am going to do a few other smaller projects first before tacking such an intensive project again.
