Many years ago I purchased a panel called Weeds N Tweeds from a local fabric store. There was a pattern in a quilting magazine on how to finish the panel but I didn't think that was necessary.
For the quilting, I'm experimenting with using thicker thread in varying colors, mainly Sulky #12.
I started quilting the first border in one color thread then switched to darker color. One really nice thing about using larger thread is that it is much easier to remove the quilting stitches.
The 2nd border looks like this.
I've marked the borders with a white Sewline Fabric Pencil.
After I'm completely finished with the quilting and binding, I'll mist water on what markings are still on the fabrics.
I'm going to free hand quilt the scene through the window using a variety of threads. I don't know if you can see but I did make black french knots on some of the flowers before quilting.
This is going to be a very slow quilting project. I won't be quilting everyday like I did on the Pastor's Attic quilt. I have three main goals with this wallhanging: 1. To finish an old project. 2. Keep my fingertips in quilting shape. 3. See how I like working with thicker thread.
