FO: Rainy Quilt

Rainy Quilt is finished.  

We got these pictures when it was nicely lit but very windy out - the thing actually does lay flat if put on a flat surface, swear.  

I used the last big hunk of Quilter's Dream Cotton Request (the thinnest one) for the batting, and quilted the whole thing with "organic" vertical lines to kind-of look like raindrops rolling down a window.  Hadn't used my free-motion foot in a long time.  Quilted a few raindrop shapes in as well, on the dark fabrics.  I auditioned white, gray, light blue, and dark blue thread for quilting, and Other liked the dark blue.  

The back is another Connecting Threads print, gotten in astonishing quantity from their Cyber Monday sale.  The finished quilt is noticeably soft, which is a nice surprise.  I bound it with the dark blue mirage that came with the Rainy Day fq pack, as well as some of the tiny white-on-blue polka dot that Other said was his favorite.  

The finished quilt is about 36"x42".  

Linking up with Finish It Up Friday at crazymomquilts. Happy crafting!

It's very pretty. Great idea, to do the organic lines representing rain.
