When going through my blog posts I found out that the Horizon quilt sat more than a year on the shelve. On Friday I made the last stitches to attach the binding. And here is the Horizon quilt:
Quilted with the walking foot in straight lines following the block pattern in vertical, horizontal and diagonal directions. Once more I have used machine quilting thread from Mettler no. 40 in color natural 04. I have pieced the back with two different fabrics : a green-blue plain and a colorful pattern fabric Cocoon in Sapphire by Valori Wells for Free Spirit. For the backing I have used 2 yards from each fabric.
The binding is a plain fabric in light lavender and stitched to the Horizon quilt entirely with the sewing machine.
Details piecing and quilting.
