This is a small quilt that was a BOM, called "Flowers," from Diana in 2010. I did not want to hand quilt it since it has so many seams.
One of my excuses for not working on it sooner was that I didn't have a walking foot before. I just purchased one after Christmas. I wanted to machine quilt this and a few other tops that I have.
The quilt is a combination of piecing and embroidery.
These are the threads I am using. The yellow on top and the pale green polyester in the bobbin. The floral is the backing fabric. It's polyester/cotton and looks a paler green in this photo.
