One of my goals for my time at my parents’ house, this time, was to get a large quilt top done on my mother’s Gammill. I’m a little daunted by the prospect of having to set up and quilt a whole quilt in one go at the LQS, and I know better than to attempt a twin-size or larger quilt on my home machine, so this was the best way.
I took my very favorite top, the double hourglass made with Neptune by Tula Pink.
After experimenting with pantographs and more freehand feathers, I decided that given my skill level and time constraints, a pantograph was the best way to go.
I love this one in conjunction with the Neptune fabric… it evokes waves and water movement. It’s exciting.
I didn’t have quite enough of the navy toile to do the backing and have the pattern the right way up, so I stole some of the aqua toile intended to be used as binding. Now I LOVE it. It looks like a ray of sunlight hitting the bottom of the water.
All in all, I am happy happy happy. Neptune is the best fabric collection ever.
