A few years back--don't even remember exactly, my son gave me a scarf that he'd purchased for me to try to quilt it so that he could use it as art. I was a bit afraid to try it. Last year, I decided that to stablize it, it would be best to iron on pellon on the back side of this rayon scarf. That was quite a process in itself. I gave it to my quilter.
Her machine needed some work to do free motion quilting, and then her father passed away, so I asked to get it back, which I think she was very glad to do.
Enter 2010--a UFO list! After completing UFO #6 which was free motion quilting I decided to try this. It's taken a bit of adjusting on the tension and though I started using white thread on the bobbin, I decided to finish by using bobbin thread of the same color as sometimes the tension just doesn't work like I'd like it to especially when I move the needle around.
Fuller view of the whole scarf. It really is gorgeous. It has a tag that says Lost River Clothing Company which is where my son purchased clothing and Tevas when he worked as a river guide in Moab, UT for about 6 summers.
