Sunny Lanes

Pretty, pretty batik quilt with the most gorgeous colors.Of course there is lots of purple in this, so maybe that's why I love it!

This is a large quilt, 94 x 110 ! Well made, all the corners matched and a joy to quilt.

The quilting design chosen was Whirlpools (very popular). I have yet to see this pattern not make a quilt even prettier when quilted!
I use a YLI variegated thread called Vineyards and changed to an #18 needle .  Signature dark purple cotton in the bobbin. Checked the tension and away we went. Looks fab. I haven't used YLI often, but this was a dream.
