A finish for June......

I did meandering with 3 different colors of thread, light at the top and increasingly darker as I got to the bottom.  I used the same print for binding that I have on the back and finished the binding by machine, stitching in the ditch on top to catch the folded edge on the back.  I actually quilted this last week and have quilted 2 more since then which I'll show when they have their binding on.  This one is about 45" wide so it will be a nice lap quilt.

I'm a big fan of zigzags anyway, but this is more wonderful for all the value and color shifts. Love it!

Thank you for the inspiration. I'm quilting a blizzard quilt for my sister, very simple piecing and lots of different patterned fabric.
I've never used meander all over a scrappy quilt before. I usually do some sort of freehand grid. When I saw your quilt, I knew it wa sideal. I'm halfway through and it looks really good. Thank you.
