It is very satisfying to have this little quilt finished - just needs binding. It is to be a wall hanging in our living room. We were visiting Sandusky, OH, about a month ago, and I visited a wonderful little quilt shop there called Mabel & Ethel's Quilt Shoppe. There I purchased a Moda layer cake called Jelly Bean Batiks and a pattern from Sweet Jane called Wishing On A Star. The finished size is 40 x 53, and it uses the layer cake and just a couple of 2-1/2" strips for the borders.
It seems I almost always have a quilt loaded on the longarm machine, but I also usually have a piecing project going on, too, that I can work on a little here and there. This little quilt has been my recent piecing project, and it went together really fast. I just quilted it in a couple of hours this morning. I like it a lot, and it will definitely brighten up a wall.
Forgot to mention that I tried out another of my new pantograph designs called Persian Paisley. It's a fun one! Here are some more pics for your enjoyment.
I used the Bauhaus pantograph with gray thread. It is a nice contemporary look. This quilt has a nice mix of fabrics that can be found at the Little Foot. I think my favorite was that print with the cherries.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in and visit!
