I'm linking this up today to TGIFF because it's a whopping finish for me :)
The sun shone, I frantically sewed the binding on and finished at midday today !!!
and the SCRAP VOMIT IS FINISHED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dh chose the binding which is I think (lime) sketch and it really is quite perfect. The quilting was a nightmare, the frame didn't want to play nice and I wanted to try a funny take on chemistry bottles/boots. The thread from Superior is yummy though, it's variegated but changes every inch or so and I bought multicolour, it's blue, aqua, red, yellow, green, orange, ohhh it's fab. I think I may be investing in a cone of it. ( I still couldn't get hold of any aurifil polyester which is a shame because I think it's cheaper than superior because you get more on the cone)
The backing was a nightmare too, I'd bought oakshotts in tigers eye especially for it and when I loaded it back on the frame I realised it was practically see through on the back and you could see every seam through the back so it had to go. Luckily I had a new sheet to use and I think it's a perfect backing, so much more *us* than plain but silky oakshott.
I'm even tempted to make a vomit cushion, Katy is indeed a witch and yes they are strangely addictive. I hated piecing it but now i'm thinking hmm when I make my next one lol...
So it's about 70" square, it has been pieced with Aurifil 50wt, has a fleece batting, quilted with Superior polyester and backed with a supermarket cotton sheet :)
Now onto my next project......
