Miss O's Zig Zag Flannel and Fleece Quilt is finally finished! Actually, it has been finished all week, but it has been pouring here so I was waiting for a photo op to become available. Unfortunately, my only option was to brave the snow and take it outside this morning!
I have a feeling this will be my last outdoor photoshoot for some time. Ah, winter...
Can you see the snow falling in this shot? I was trying to tale the photo so it would appear against the flannel. Anna Maria Horner Good Folks and Lou Lou Thi flannel of course. You can read more about the progression of this quilt here.
I chose a durable fleece for the back and was just going to knot it or do little x's with my machine to quilt the back to the top. But I ended up doing these little swirls and the flannel/fleece combination was like butter for the Juki! I rather like the pattern it creates on the back.
I have quite a few strands to cut from the swirls now that it is complete - I am looking forward snipping those while sitting under it in the evening as we watch tele.
Even Miss Portia was dying to go in during this photoshoot...can you spot here there amidst the snow and grass? She almost looks like a large leaf!
And as promised - me as a Sugar Skull!
[The Beer Pong going on in the background is NOT at my house but at a Halloween Party we attended! Hahahahaa...]
