What materials did you use? This little quilt was made with some fabric that I dyed. The background is a piece of snow dyed fabric. The batting is one layer of cotton, with a half layer of wool on top. All the quilting is done with 100Wt thread. The quilt was free motion quilted on my domestic sewing machine. The quilt is about 18"x22".

What are you most proud of? The Twist Tie block was the perfect block for my gradationally dyed fabric. Such a fun block to make! It is a 7" block.

The fabric colors are lovely. I like the hing of yellow. May I ask? Why did you use 100wt thread? How does it compare to Bottomline 60wt?

Thanks for the comment! I used 100Wt thread, because I have lots, in different colours, and really like it. I find that it is less noticeable when quilting. I used it instead of Bottomline because it is a wall hanging - if it was going to be a quilt that was used and washed I would have used the 60wt thread. I quilted a queen size whole cloth bed quilt and used Bottomline (for the top and bobbin) and loved quilting with it; because the quilting design was on a larger scale than this one (I used the same designs), 60wt seemed appropriate too.

Just beautiful. Thanks for the comments on thread. I am just starting this quilt journey and like hearing what others are saying. Also I don't know much about snow dying (being from Saskatchewan) but have done some regular dying and got wonderful results.
