The weather took a decided turn to the colder side this week, truly Autumn is upon us. A rainy day yesterday had me working on quilting projects all day. On the blog today, we finish up today with quilting and binding. I hope you have enjoyed this quilt along. I have enjoyed seeing your projects on your own blogs and on Facebook so much, thanks for sharing. So, when we left off, we were beginning the quilting of the table topper. I chose an 80/20 blend batting for this one.
The pantograph is one I have used a lot, as the gentle swirls compliment the angles of the piecing well. It is Pipeline by Urban Elementz.
The soft brown Glide thread blends well in the darker areas and makes a nice texture in the background.
The center star looks nice with this combination. I am really happy with the way this project came out.
Quilting all done, ready for trimming and finishing.
I made the binding in the same brown print as the final top border. I test fit it to be sure that no seams end up on the corners.
Hand stitching while watching football games, I finished it up last Sunday.
All done! Ready for a Thanksgiving table.
