I finished this scarf last night and just love it. Let me know what you think!
It’s foundation pieced on a piece of warm, high-quality flannel and quilted with a brown suit-like fabric.

I really love it if I do say so myself. It’s supposed to be remeniscent of lying in the grass looking up at the sky. Remember that? I do. And it always makes me feel good. So I took solid pieces of the grass fabric and overlaid sky printed fabric and cut out the swirl shapes. I’ve got a thing for spirals right now. Anyway, then I put an white and black striped edge around the blanket and backed it with a bright sunshine yellow batik.
Quilting was a challenge. i knew the look I was going for, but I’m just getting started with freeform stitching. I outlined all of the main shapes and then just started stitching lines outward from the shapes with 1/4-1/2 inch gaps between. I think it really gives it a nice effect. No?
Here are the pics.
