Well my square dance quilt is quilted and washed and ready to use. All I did was quilt in the ditch, but even that took a long time. I realized while quilting it how much I don’t like moving around a lap size quilt under my domestic machine. I can’t imagine quilting anything larger than lap size this way. It makes me want a long arm quilting machine and frame. Dream on….
The goal for this quilt was to use up blue squares in my stash from a fabric exchange as well as use up more blues for the back of the quilt. Here is the back of the quilt showing how I used up the rest of the blue squares as well as some other fabrics in my stash. I also used different light blues/whites for the binding. Even though I used up quite a bit of fabric, I still have more in my closet.
The parade yesterday in NYC was great. The weather was fantastic and we had a really good time.
