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.
