And Now, For Something Different...

Remember this quilt top I showed you a while back? I got it back from the quilters! I've got to trim it up and bind it, then Caleb can sleep under it this Fall. I made the top ages ago, I just never put borders on it or quilted it. The block pattern is Goose in the Pond. (The block directions in the previous link make a 10 inch finished block which is smaller than the block size I used, but it will give you a better idea of what the block looks like.) Its a scrappy top, I used different whites and pale beiges for the background, blues and greens for the "Geese" (half square triangles) and the stripes, and darker beiges and browns for the nine patches. Caleb is already having fun looking at the different fabrics in this quilt. There are dolphins, leaves, flowers, birds, hearts, and cowboys in the various prints.
Here is a close up of one corner so you can see the quilting. I asked for an allover pattern called a stipple, which is essentially a meandering line that never crosses itself. They did a beautiful job on it.

I have a number of quilts in various stages of being finished and I really need to get working on them. The Sew? I Knit along project for this month and next month is a quilt. Maybe I can get out another one and get it finished.

LOVE your quilt!! I have quilted some small projects in years past but keep putting of a big quilt till "one day"....you know...when I retire, have oodles of free time, etc. Hmmm...may need to rethink that and get started...by the time I retire may not be ABLE to quilt!! This looks FANTASTIC!!! You should be very proud of yourself!!!

Love the quilt! I am curious about the shop tht did the quilting though. Is this the first time that you used them? Like you, I have a large pile of tops that are looking for some one to quilt them so I am always on the lookout for a really good place.

To answer Mia's question about the quilting shop, I used to work at Quilt 'N Stitch so I know a lot of the people who work there, know the owner and know that they will do a great job on the quilting.

Beautiful quilt. I hope your new puppy is keeping a safe distance away from it...
