Another quilt finish

Well it's almost done.  Now to find that misplaced black binding.  I know I'll find it as soon as I cut more...isn't that how it usually goes?  So I'm showing you anyway without binding and with horrible lighting.  
The light weight poly batting worked well for the minimal quilting.
Rarely do I work with poly batting and if I do it's not light weight.  Most quilters nowadays steer clear of 100% poly.  But you know me, living on the edge!  Yeah right!   Sometimes you just need to do your own thing and not listen to the critics.  Throw the rules out the window.  Its your quilting and your rules.
I've quilted thing to death for so long that this quilt feels odd.  When I pick it up its so light and fluffy feeling.  
The corner motif matches other cherry squares
Simple zigzag on the border.
I love the back!  Pulled from the vintage yardage stash.  Love the little roses! Can't wait to use the scraps from this backing in a quilt.  Too Cute!

  4. Your quilt looks beautiful and I agree.....cut more binding and it will show up. I used to make all of my quilts, toppers and runners from 100% poly and always was happy with the way they looked especially after washing. I used cotton batting now mainly because I buy it by the bolt. If the batting works......use it! No rules! Thanks for sharing.
