The start of # 3

This is the point at which I am resuming quilt # 3.
This was a mystery quilt from a long time ago, but I think more than 10 years.
The pattern and fabric was from the Quilters Barn.
I was timely in finishing the top.
At some point I basted it and started hand quilting but didn't progress very far.
I unearthed it from the blanket box on Tuesday, pulled out the hand quilting, undid the basting ( which was a bit scanty), re-pressed the top and backing and rebasted it.
I am not very happy with the batting, puffy and polyester I think, but I am not going to waste it.
I will ditch quilt to stabilise the layers with monfilament and then cross-hatch it in dark green.
I will bind it either in the rust or the green.
