A few people had questions about the kite quilt. Thanks so much for asking in your comments. The kites will have embroidered tails with three-dimensional bows. The quilt will finish at approximately 16”x 20”.
Here’s the back. The unquilted sections are behind the kites. I marked the design on the front before I started quilting and tried to quilt on the lines. It resulted in more jagged quilting lines than if I had just went at it. I’ll never do that again. From now on my free motion is freestyle.
I also used another piece of the not quite 100% cotton on the back. It doesn’t show as well in the picture, but in person you can see that the cross threads did not take the dye. I know I have at least one more piece like this, maybe two. They make great backs for small quilts.
