I finally have a quilted finish!
Last night I was determined to get something stitched - anything. The objective was to start and FINISH a project. Being able to do it in one night was a bonus and a boost.
It started with cutting, using the pink pad as a pattern. Butterfly fabric for the top, with plain natural muslin as the back and batting scraps (yes - use them up!) in between.
I quilted diagonal lines in a lime/aqua variegated thread and used extra wide double fold bias tape for the binding.
FINISHED!! I have a new pretty saddle for the upcoming spring fun show. Better yet - I have some stitching momentum building heading into the weekend!
