On February 11 Topsy entered the completed column, and restored my confidence that I could actually finish a quilt. She flaunts bold, cheerful colors that are restorative at this time of year. And she’s unbound. Do I feel transgressive or what?
Her curves indeed show off better on the horizontal, as many of you suggested. The actual machine quilting through all layers is simple curved lines in two colors of 30 weight cotton thread. The edges of the charcoal gray felt are stitched down with 50 weight cotton thread in a jeans stitch (mode 2, stitch number 20 on my Janome.) She measures 26.5 inches by 34 inches.
