The final quilt of the year was just finished today. This was one of those quilts that really only needed SID in all of the seams in order to keep your eye on her lovely fabrics and piecing design.
The sashing and borders were only about 3" wide. So any design that I would've put into them would've puckered up the rest of the unquilted areas, causing a big mess. Instead, I opted to do only SID throughout, so that the stiff batiks would be drapey and uninterrupted.
I used YLI monofilament thread throughout, with 40 wt. Aurifil cotton in the bobbin. The batting is Hobbs 100% Cotton.
Have a very Merry Christmas! And a Happy New Year, too!
