Another completed quilt for 2013! And just in time for the cold weather that is already upon us here in Northern Illinois - there are snow flurries in the forecast today - what?! The "fall back" clock change hasn't even happened yet.
But we are ready for snuggling with this extra large napping quilt. It's nearly twin sized, measuring 60" x 84" :)
The all-over quilting pattern features acorns and maple, ash, and oak leaves.
The quilting thread is a dark, rusty orange. It shows up really well against these light squares.
For the backing I used two large pieces from the stash and purchased the gold and rust print (Folkloric Blooms by Sue Spargo and Wendy Morris for Robert Kaufman) on the right.
The black and white wiggly stripe binding is from Moda's Halloween line The Boo Crew, and it's called "Black Tricky". Love that!
Now I've just got to put a label on this so it can be washed and dried for maximum cozy softness during TV watching or book reading in the cold days to come!
