Look what I finally photographed today….
It is a sampler quilt I started last year – mainly to do practice blocks for the bee I was in but that was not going to give me enough blocks so I used Quiltmakers 100 blocks magazines and the Modern Blocks book for extra inspiration! And one block I drew up on EQ7 just for the fun of it!
99% of the fabric is “Where the wind blows” and is just perfect for a little girl!
And the quilt is a fairly generous single bed size – I honestly don’t feel like getting up to measure it right now!
I could figure it out though, the blocks are 12” and 2” sashings and about 5” borders….got your calculators out girls? 54” x 82” sounds about right!
This is the first quilt I have quilted on the Short-arm quilting machine that I am looking after for my SIL…I am pretty happy with how it turned out! And so much quicker then wrestling it through my regular machine!
Don’t you just love a polka dot binding?!
Here is the label and the backing fabric…I know my recipients mum is a follower but I don’t think she is a regular reader – if she is she’ll have to “shhh”!
The only thing I haven’t done is washed it…I know a lot of people do this before gifting quilts. What do you think I should do?
