I was able to spend quite a bit of time in the sewing room this last week. A baby quilt (41″ x 56″) made with recycled shirts was completed in four days. The pattern Follow My Lead is from Nancy Zieman’s booklet “Column Quilts”. Her directions make a reversible quilt, however I stitched the columns on a backing/batting foundation instead.
Once the baby quilt was completed, I was motivated to load Dashing on the quilt frame. After a couple of evenings the machine quilting was done.
I used the panto-graph Geisha from Urban Elementz. This quilting design gives an open and airy feel to the quilt.
Dashing is going to be a college graduation gift and I can’t believe that I will have it ready three month early. Hand-stitching the binding is this weekend’s project, so I had better get busy.
