The quilt top was completed last year at the drag strip. I felt that was fitting as that was also where I started it and I displayed the quilt on the car. Then it waited. I take the view that I have to do customer quilts before my own and I've had a steady stream of them coming in. Now I've cleared most of them and I am not working at Patchwork Corner for a couple of weeks I've had a chance to get it quilted.
As I said yesterday I decided to have wool wadding in this quilt. There are two layers to make it really warm and to give good definition to the quilting. Oddly while it is really obvious in real life in photos you can hardly see the quilting let alone how puffy the wadding is.
