Wintry Shoo-Fly is finished! Blocks for this quilt were made by the Love circle girls of do.Good Stitches.
I asked for blocks with blue shoo-flies on a mixed gray background (this was my block) of any size.
Assembling this type of quilt makes me happy. The first do.Good Stitches quilt I assembled was similar. I like quilts with varying block sizes. It's like working a puzzle, in a way.
After the top was assembled, I searched the stash for backing and binding fabric.
I chose this Hope Valley print and Kona Lake for the back, and a Dear Stella dot for the binding.
Olias was my quilting helper, as well as the Machingers gloves that Nicke gifted me last year.
I chose a loopy quilting design, and only quilted the negative space. I like the texture it provides (especially on the back, as you can see above).
It is exciting to feel some progress in free motion quilting!
This quilt finishes at 50" x 64", and I think it will find a good home with our charity, Wrap Them in Love.
And it's always promising when you want to keep the quilt for yourself, right?
