woven finish

We had the prettiest, fluffy snowfall, and, I was anxious to get a photo of this recent finish. What a fun combination. I started this quilt last year, as part of the rainbow scrap challenge. Every month I made the 4 patches in the color of the month from 2 1/2 inch squares. Otherwise, it would have been a quick and easy quilt to make.


I used a variegated thread and a free motion swirl pattern. It finished at 54 x 60 inches, and has 429 pieces, and used 7 1/4  yards of fabric ( mostly scraps ). I used my sewing machine for the binding. I am getting happier with the results of machine binding.


The back was a really nice sheet from goodwill. The legs were from my husband. lol


This quilt is part of my one monthly goal for February and one of my PHD 2020.
