I decided to buy a darning foot so that I could do free motion quilting for the first time, but boy, I did not realize how hard it would be to find a darning foot. After multiple stores I finally got one and WOW, loved it! It was so easy because you don't have to stick to a pattern (meaning following lines or squares). The only problem I had was that it lead to having multiple puckers, hence getting out my un-picker (which is NOT my favorite thing to do). I know as I get better at it this will not (hopefully) happen.
I also used white Kona Muslin for the borders of this quilt and I do have to say I was not a huge fan of it. It wrinkles like crazy.
The quilt measures 60 x 75. I had a lot of shrinkage in the quilting and washing of this quilt. According to this post it is supposed to be 65 x 80, oh well. Note to self: next time make it bigger so that after quilting and washing it will be the desired size!
I was really happy with the binding. I think that the brown really pops on this quilt.
