So I finished this quilt way back in September. It immediately vanished into the depths of the lair. Today he had somewhere to be, and I offered to wash his sheets and quilts. He isn't my first teen, and I have learned to be sly!
The quilt is about 72" by 96". Plenty to wrap like a burrito in....which is what he does. I have the block pattern pinned somewhere on my quilting Pinterest board.
It was a windy fall day to be trying to photograph a quilt! I straight lined quilted to make a cuddly quilt. I love how it drapes. The bright orange binding finished it up nicely.
Used up a lot of leftover fabric on the back. Fabrics with a sport theme just linger in the scrap bin; better to use them now. My boy likes them better than I do anyway.
I had four blocks that had been test blocks. Love them, but didn't really need a whole quilt of them. Before Treasure and I left for our trip to Houston, I practiced some FMQ on them with Violet my Singer 201. I am rusty!!
Long story short, Treasure's business trip to Houston just happened to coincide with Houston's International Quilt Festival! I had been wanting to try out a Juki, and I got the opportunity.
Treasure likes a good deal, so we took advantage of the show special!
Last night I practiced using the knee lift and the thread cutter. Love!! I finished up these two pouches zippy-quick. The Juki handled the zippers like butter.
Hoping to try out some FMQ today!!
