I finished this quilt, and used one of my new labels on it. I like these, and will sure use them, but I will also make my usual Printed Treasures labels so all the details are recorded too.
I've been anxious to try quilting that double batting. Today I had time to play with my test piece. Not only do I love the way this looks, but it quilted just beautifully!

I'm charmed with how this looks, and excited to get started on the big quilt!

Here's the test quilting from the back. Backing fabric is Carolyn Friedlander's 108" Widescreen, in grey.
