Yay! I finished this quilt for BASICS Inc, and it should be received in plenty of time for their next quilt distribution day on December 1st! I am so glad to help Victoria with this ongoing project. If you are interested in learning more, check out the Basics Quilt Gather website.
As previously mentioned, this quilt top was made using the 1600 quilt method with a bali pop I hand on hand. The orange batik used for backing and binding was leftover from my son's quilt.
I quilted straight lines using an orangey variegated thread (Mettler #9858) which is fun to see on the different colored batiks. I didn't mark lines or use painter's tape, but instead used the edge of my walking foot and the seams as a guide.
Here's the quilt straight out of the dryer. In searching for a good photo place, I noticed this tree full of oranges in our backyard. Perfect! This quilt shall now be named Orange Delight.
I hope this quilt makes someone feel warm, safe and secure.
Enjoy your weekend!
