Dream Big - Aqua Panel

Nearly finished my first dream big panel.  added these borders, a free pattern  HERE.

Learned so much free motion quilting while playing on this panel--techniques from Amy Johnson, Angela Walters  and Natalia Bonner videos. Thank you, ladies for such amazing instruction and encouragement.  It has been a wonderful journey.

So this first panel, the aqua version,   is  'nearly' done.  I was waiting to get the dark thread to finish in a few corners of the panel and also still need to find the perfect shade of fabric for the binding.  After all this work,  I wouldn't want to finish off with an unsightly binding.  I also must remember to arc off the 4 corners before attaching binding.  It helps to keep the bed quilts from dragging and tripping you up.

I used a high-loft poly batting and  a few shades of Glide thread  to emphasize the quilting, done on my AQ16 sit-down machine. It measures 80 x 90 .




and I  always  go to the back first …..

  2. OMG! That is beautiful. I am at a loss for words. With that gorgeous quilting you could have made a whole cloth quilt because the back stands on its own. I bow before your quilty abilities.
