Two and a half years later……

Yes, I know that I’m not the only one who buys fabric and lets it ‘mature’ on the shelf while other projects take precedence! And when I consider how much I love these beautiful Dream Big panels, I’m surprised I don’t have several more stashed away. Even though I love quilting them, this is only the second that I’ve done and I’m trying very hard to not buy any more lol.
Finished size is about 41.5″w x 39.5″h. The custom quilting is all done by me, hand guided on my HQ Sweet Sixteen. It’s double batted to give it the loft and texture I adore: one layer of warm & plush topped with one layer of Hobbs Heirloom Premium washable wool. I used three colours of Glide thread and one of Superior Bottom Line (the matchsticks) on top. I decided to live on the edge and used a contrasting magna glide thread (cream) in the bobbin to make the design stand out on the back. I think because of the double batting neither top nor bottom thread showed through on the opposite side. It didn’t stand out as much as I thought it would but it wasn’t a fail either thankfully.
Inspiration came from many places: Pinterest of course, my own limited creativity and I took Lauren’s course from Bold Notion Quilting.
