Secret Sewing Reveal

I'm finally able to show some of the secret sewing that I've done recently. Here are a few pictures of Through the Woods, a pattern test that I did for Rachel Rossi.

They have become this quilt...

I struggled getting good pictures of this quilt. It was windy and the lighting was not great. Here are a couple of close up views. I quilted this on my domestic machine and am pleased with the results.

See what I mean about the wind?

The wind stopped, but the lighting was not good.

I like how the quilting looks on the back.

The backing fabric is perfect!

I decided to try to get some pictures by the ravine.

You can't see it well, but I had a visitor when I started to hang the quilt. The deer started running away before I could snap a good picture. It would have been sweet to have been able to see it in a picture with the quilt. Maybe next time. 

I'm thrilled with how the quilt looks and am pleased to have been part of the testing group. I'm working on another test pattern for Rachel and should have more to show later this week. FYI - The pattern has a bunch of half square triangles and a really quilt way to make them. Stay tuned for more.

Love the new pattern and you did a fabulous job with yours. The backing is perfect to complete this.

Congratulations on the finish and getting to share your secret sewing. It looks great and I think it's fun how much you can pick up about the design on the back due to your quilting.
