Welcome to finish it up Friday!
flea market fancy tutorial for the pattern. This was my first time using Essex Linen (the color is flax) for the background of a quilt. It certainly behaves differently than cotton does, but I had no issues with it. I did a shrink test of the fabric before I began, just to be safe. My 6" test square only shrunk about 1/8", so I don't think shrinkage will be a problem. The batting will most likely shrink more than that.
good neighbors fabric (cross stitch in kiwi) for a gift for my neighbor. :) It's the little things...right? For the quilting, I did an all over stipple in a light gray thread (Aurifil 2615). It blended so well with all the fabrics!
Now, it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday!
