I just could not leave town knowing that I had more binding to do when I got home. When I travel I have to prepare a lot of my food to take with. Between kitchen sessions I focused on getting this done.
I am thrilled with this quilt! This is the second Antelope Canyon quilt that I've made. I really like this pattern by Laurie Shiffrin. I do not know the couple this quilt is made for very well. But I made a quilt for the groom's sister and wanted him to have one too. I searched their registry to come up with the color theme.
The quilt is made of 4 blocks. 4 very big blocks!
I used 8 steps of the Black Shades pack and 4 steps of Indra for the fabrics. The background is the lightest shade and I used a controlled random pattern of 6 steps of black for the arcs.
I quilted it with the Woven Wind pantograph. I love this one because it keeps the quilt nice and soft and it's really fast to quilt.
The groom is an avid hunter so I selected a winter camouflage print for the backing. I know that if they don't like the front of the quilt that they will love the back!
I do not worry about what happens to my quilts once they are gifted. I don't like to gift them with any sort of responsibility. I will let them know that if they want to let the dogs play on the quilt that I'm OK with that.
I'm happy to end April with this big finish!
