Chopsticks Quilt- Serenade by Kate Spain Collection

  I am so excited to show you my latest top stitched quilt.  I had it sitting for a couple weeks waiting for a day that I had time to go work on it on the long arm. 

  I decided to do double batting to give it more of a comforter feel.  It really shows off the stitching.  I used Glide thread in the silver color.  I can't believe how well it turned out.  Originally I was going to do a custom design but I like the way edge to edge designs look on the back better.  I used a flat sheet for the backing that has a beautiful sheen to it.  It wasn't originally planned this way but it really is a reversible quilt.  For the binding I used two different fabrics from the collection, alternating.   This was a very difficult quilt to bind because it was huge and heavy, but I got it done!
