Rainy Days Quilt


Took my latest quilt outside to take a few pictures. Common sense should have told me that if I wanted to use the kids' playhouse to hang the quilt, I'd have more 'help' than necessary. They are awfully cute though!

 

This quilt measures 74x74 inches and I had no trouble maneuvering it under my 6600P Janome. It wasn't a walk in the park, especially since I used a 70/30 cotton/poly Quilter's Dream batting. It is a very dense batt, though not too puffy. QD poly battings are different from other poly batts I've tried before. They're almost like a blanket.
A shot of the back. I must remember how much it bugs me to use directional prints. I hate that the umbrellas are not all in the same orientation. Can you see the umbrellas I quilted in the larger blocks? I think it turned out pretty cute and it's a great quilt to snuggle under.

Now.....on to the next project! Ummm.....exactly which of the 20 or so unfinished projects is supposed to be next?
