Weekend Baby Quilt Finished

Here’s a quilt I finished this weekend. Mother pieced it, and I quilted it. This quilt is for the twins–one quilt for the two of them. I used my Quilt EZ template system for the spirals. The stylus isn’t working very well anymore–have written Quilt EZ, but no response yet. I got the idea for quilting the corners from Janet’s example of the Bullseye quilt on LAC. I made the “corner” square where she made it circular. I think I like the way she did it better.

The piecing design is great for Mother as her piecing is not as accurate now that she only has the use of one arm. This is a square with sashing on two sides in an L-shape. I can square this pieced unit up perfectly and it goes together like a dream. It makes a beautiful quilt that can be made from scraps or a coordinated fabric medley.


 
 

Graceful Geishas

This is what I finished today. It’s a printed panel called “Graceful Geishas”.

This was fun to do. I used Isacord thread in the top and Bottom Line thread in the bobbin. The batting is Dream Blend Select. I used my Quilt EZ double spiral template to quilt the large spiral and then used free-hand quilting for the rest. The binding seems a little tight, so it may need to be blocked. The hanging sleeve was stitched into the top binding and then a machine hem stitch was used on the lower edge. I was hesitant to pre-wash the fabric because it was so shiny and pretty. Sometimes polished cottons lose a little sheen when they’re washed. Here’s some of the detail.
