I must be tired, I cannot even come up with a good name for this post.
Maybe they should all just be numbered.
That would be easy.
Before I left for Colorado, I went on a quilt shop hop and got a pattern and a bunch of
batik charm squares.
I was able to piece the front before I left and I was almost through with the back.
I had great intentions of finishing and quilting this baby quilt while I was gone.
It did not happen.
Not even close.
So, this last Sunday at quilt class, I was able to put this together and get it quilted.
I thought the back was bigger when I made it but it was not. It was about a quarter of
an inch smaller than the front.
It's okay. I got to learn a new way of sandwiching a quilt.
And it worked. :-)
After it was turned the correct way, I hand sewed the edge closed and then quilted it.
This is for a friends grandbaby and I wanted it a little modern and funky on the sewing.
There is a wonky circle in each of the squares,
a small circle in each intersection,
and the edge has a squiggle and then a 1/4 inch around the edge.
I was very pleased with the fun quilting and hope that my friend likes it.
I am still amazed at how much I am loving all this sewing.
