Drunk Zebra is done
Since the beginning of this quilt, I love the pattern.
Yes, chain piecing the paper foundation piecing was boring, really boring.
But, with a good audio book in the ears and some cups of coffee, every piecing has an end and you completed a whole quilt front.
It took me a lot of thinking and time to decide, how to quilt this black/white quilt. I didn't want the quilting thread to stand out too much, but you should see the texture. I thought about a mid-grey color, but then I would be recognized on black and white.
Lucky me found a varigated thread at one booth at the "Patchworkmesse Erding" this year and all I had to do now was quilt.
I used the Freudenberg Eco-Batting. It is a little sticky on both sides and this helps a lot, when you use normal needles to make the sandwich. It does not shift that much.
After quilting this, I was very impatient to finish it and cuddle underneath. I used a tutorial for machine binding and this really works out great. I need to improve on binding like this but for the first time doing this, it was OK.
The back is my beloved IKEA fabric
I finished the quilt on first of October and like to showplace it on AmysCreativeSide
Happy quilting everyone :)
