What materials did you use?
Scrap materials from past quilting. Fabrics from old aprons and left over from clothing as a child.
Your playfulness with colors makes a delightful pattern, and the falling gig that continues to the back reminds me of falling stars! Well done!
I agree with Hulalulu. The gig added to the border and creative/fun backing are terrific!
what is the size of the quilt? which sewing machine did you use to quilt it?
this is a baby sized quilt (35" by 40" ish)
This baby sized quilt is aprox 40"X35". I used scraps, some pieces of fabric are older than my 44 years, example the purple boarder is from the early 70's.
I pieced and quilted the quilt on my Pfaff Tiptronic 2040. The body of the quilt is echo quilted and I free motioned a free hand pattern around the boarder.
I love the quilt but have no idea of how to lay out the squares before cutting.
I must admit the appliques were a necessity. My 3 y/o took scissors to the quilt while I was in the process of quilting. One through and through in the frame and several nicks in the backing. Ended up making the quilt better in the long run.
