We had a wedding Saturday and guess what? The Tuesday before, I decided to make the couple a lap quilt for a present. For some people, close dead lines drive them crazy….for me, I thrive!
At 8 am Saturday morning…this was my progress. Quilt top finished, in the quilt machine and half done.
I have a Pfaff Grand Quilter with a Next Generation Quilt Frame that I do all my quilting on. I’ve had it a year and LOVE it.
Here’s a close up shot of the quilt. I just did a stippling stitch. It’s fast and at this point, fast is what I needed!
By 9:30, the quilt was quilted….now all I had left to do was bind it. BUT, I didn’t have enough red fabric for the binding. SO…off to the quilt shop. You should have seen the ladies in the quilt shop when I said I only had five hours until the wedding starts…lots of dropping jaws.
I got home and right to work. Here it is at 2:00 pm, bound and up on the clothesline for a quilt display. Forgive the weeds in my flower garden…I (really) didn’t have time to remove them for the photo.
This quilt is a disappearing nine patch made from Moda’s Charisma Fabric line. I used four charm packs to make it. Here’s a great tutorial for the pattern. It’s the same one Kelli used for her Hawkeye Baby Quilt.
I have another wedding in July. I cut the fabric for a quilt on Sunday so stop back and see it I can make the deadline.
