On Ringo Lake (TGIFF)

Welcome friends old and new to TGIFF this week! This quilt has taken me longer than it should because I have jumped into some other projects in the middle. With the small pieces of the Bonnie Hunter design, I knew an all over stitching pattern would work best, and I am happy with the dahlia style FMQ. I tried out my new ruler foot for the setting triangles and border, and I think I like it but I need more practice.
This was on my 2019-Q1 finish a long list too!

The quilt finished at 49″ x 63″, using Warm and Natural batting and Aurifil thread in Aluminum for all of the stitching, including the machine stitched binding. The backing is from Paper Obsessed by Heather Givans, and is an awesome modern blender. When it came to the binding, like many times before I eyed up the trimmings from the back and said, “Heck, yeah!”, only requiring a couple of extra pieces to make up the length I needed (not quite perfectly, I needed to add another 3″ to make sure it would go all the way around).

See my awesome cone thread hack? And the stitch holder (used for knitting) was fortuitously sitting nearby and makes the perfect loop to redirect the thread into my machine.
