a lovely little finish

My auntbets quilt #2 is finished. Initially, I did some machine quilting to accentuate the horizontal lines and to stabilize the whole quilt. And then I spent some time in the evenings hand tying randomly with cream candlewicking yarn. It's ended up a very lovely, soft & cuddly quilt.
Thanks for stopping by, Linda

Linking up with Kelly here for 'needle and thread Thursday'


  1. I like the Interesting structural effect given by those dark fabrics Linda, a lovely finish!

  2. Finished already?!? Wow!
    It really does look cuddly. Enjoy! 8)

  3. As I've written before - lovely colors, very restful. That sounds like a good plan to mix machine quilting stabilization with tying. Congratulations on another beautiful finish.

  4. I love the combination of machine quilting and tying! It looks so soft. What type of batting did you use?

    1. Yes it’s ended up much softer than a quilt that’s been more densely quilted that’s for sure. I’m working my way through leftover batting pieces, Matilda’s cotton natural.

  5. Gosh you are speedy. Wonder how machine quilting a little and hand tying would go on my Tula quilt?

  6. It does look very cuddly and the tied look suits it very well!

  7. Oh!
    I like your quilt.
    Nice work, I think.


  8. I love the combination of the blue florals with the pops of pink and yellow! A very sweet finish!

  9. Congrats on a lovely finish!
