Another UFO, Warhol Angels, from the challenge list is finished. This one did not finish easily though! I tried to get a proper picture of it outside today, but the patio was way too icy.
I had the inked blocks (inked the same way as my little playing with colours tutorial), and the holly leaf batik fabric for the border. Wanting a little challenge using other’s choice of colours, I brought some fabrics to my nameless quilting group and they helped me choosing the green and purple fabrics for sashing and setting squares. I thought it needed some more bright colours, so I replaced the green with pink squares around the edges. So far, so good.
I know I have read a warning somewhere to never use mystery batting, but I had this incredible soft and lovely polyester batting that I really wanted to use. Now, I know from experience that it does not work well with basting spray, so I basted the living daylight out of the thing using every safety pin in the house.
There is no straight quilting line in this quilt. It kept shifting and sliding even though I used my otherwise trustworthy walking foot. At some point I had to decide whether it should go back into the UFO pile, or get finished - ever. I chose to finish it, wobbly seams and all. It will only be out at Christmas and most of the time it will be folded up on the arm rest of the sofa.
Still; it's a finished UFO:-)
