Gayla's Antique Fans

I'm ashamed to say that I've had this quilt for a very, very long time. Gayla moved away and you know how the saying goes, "out of sight, out of mind!" Well, that was the case. I also didn't know how I was going to quilt it.

She sent a cone of Orange King Tut thread so I used that along with orange Glide prewound bobbins. Very nice stitches and I didn't have to play with my tension at all. I love it when that happens.

Baptist fan quilting for this one. I chose that partly because the sides don't have any borders, so I thought an edge-to-edge design would work best.

And the back, which doesn't show the fabric very well. Just the lower left corner you can see the true colors.

Baptist fan is perfect for this quilt. The backing?....are we seeing through it in that picture?
