Actually, its been finished for a couple of weeks, but I needed a sunny day and time to blog!!
put together in January, quilted in March.
I also included on the back when I was in other cities.
The words on the front were cut with my Silhouette Machine of black batik backed with Pellon Wunder Under 805. I fused them down, then did a lot of quilting over them to hold down the letters. I was much too lazy to change quilting thread. I may go back and color those threads black, but its not at the top of my list. Probably because I'm so happy to have it finished.
I'm not doing one this year, but am constantly tempted. There are others out there making them this year - you can look on Instagram for #tempquilt18
The main floral backing came from Hobby Lobby and is super soft. It was a potential border for the front, but I ended up going with the shells. If you look closely, I actually took the time to make sure they all are going the same way!
