It doesn't get any closer than this. I did have a back up spool of YLI, just in case.
This is my first piece from Gwen Marstons workshop I took last May. I made a second one, quilted it and gifted it. This one is for me.
The finished size is 22 x 24 and I loved doing the hand quilting. No marking on the borders, I just guesstimated a needles length between each row of stitching and liked the angled lines, it works with the piecing in the center. Tonight I'll start the hand stitching on the binding.
Solids are fun to play with, I'll be doing more this spring!
