Now that Primary Colors top is done it was time to get back to Handful of Scraps – and there was just a tiny bit of quilting left to do on the Stain Glass Stars wall hanging and I finished that last night – soaked the blue quilting lines out and left it drying on the floor. I will trim it down today and get binding cut.
First here is the wall hanging 15” x 33”
The ends will be squared up coming to just past the rope quilting.
For the quilting I used a King Tut variegated thread – I wasn’t sure if I would have enough as it was from a thread previously used on another quilt but I knew I could order it if I needed more – I didn’t plenty of thread was on it. It has yellows, reds, oranges and greens in it.
On Handful of Scraps I have 3 neutral rows that I added to the top last month and now I have one row added to the bottom – two more to go and then I will add 3 rows to the sides. At that point I will decide how many more rows of neutrals to make – right now I think 6 rows will be good but I will decide once the sides are on and see how I like it. This quilt will take quite some time still. I think this measures 48” x 60” when the last two rows are added. Linking to My Quilt Infatuation today.
