The quilt measures just shy of the requested 98" (2.5m) squared and the batting consists of 80% cotton and 20% synthetic. I had to go to Tel Aviv to get this batting, so I hope it's good.
Here you can get an idea of the 3D geese and pinwheels. Fun to make and I did easily manage to avoid them during the quilting process, which was a concern before starting. The 3D does add a bit of texture and I think it makes the quilt more interesting.
A close-up of the swirls. Not perfect, but this is not long-arm quilting after all!
The back was pieced with the left-over fabrics. I did buy quite a lot of fabric for this quilt and still did not have much to spare in the end. Perhaps I am finally getting a sense for quantity requirements. Not exactly my forte. However, it is not the end of the world if there are leftovers, because then there is the excuse to start another project to get rid of the scraps, right?
Have a glorious day!
PS: I just got word from my aunt that she and her husband love the quilt. Great news!
