While some of my friends are getting cabin fever, I am happy to get all this bonus studio time. Yesterday I finished the quilting on my Ginkgo quilt. I was so pleased to see that there was no distortion, in spite of the intense quilting and it only shrank about a half inch on the width and length.
I quilted the background in a variegated blue thread. I frequently use variegated thread and this was Sulky rayon.
I am so glad that I took the extra time to piece the back. I love the way it looks.
Today I will bind it in a medium blue and then I will have hand work to do during the Olympics. I actually have a place for this in my house when the exhibit is over. It should look great in my upstairs hallway.
