Fair Isle Quilt

I made very good progress last month on this "abandoned" quilt along and pieced the whole top in just under 2 weeks. I really like the look of it and didn't want to risk putting it away for another 2 years!

I ordered some wool batting (a first for me but so soft!) and a wide backing (because I hate piecing backing!) and off I went! I must admit I was a little intimidated about how to quilt it and I had various ideas but in the end, I decided that an easy soft meander would work and take the stress away!

and I added little messages as well

Started November 2014
Finished December 2016
Fabric: solids
Backing: white on white
Quilted with Superior Thread King Tut on top and Aurifil in the bobbin

Linking to Let's Bee Social,  Needle and Thread Thursday and and Whoop Whoop Friday and to Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal as this was my project for December as well as my last off my Q4 FAL list.
