Topic: Quilting

It does seem rather quickly that this quilt finish is following on the heels of another but it is really true! I did a massive one-day scrap sorting, pattern selecting, piece cutting session and managed to wrangle all the parts for five lap quilts. I then did two days of piecing them, one after the other, and one day of pinning them all to backings.

After having finished up the birdhouse quilt I then had all five of these lap quilts ready for quilting. With meander quilting I can do two per day and then I can stitch the binding down at a rate of one per evening.

So, expect to see several coming up here right-quick.

The first I finished off features a tulip print that was gifted to me in a box of leftovers from a friend's stash (thanks, Kim!). I added some green left from the birdhouse quilt and some red solid left from the backing of the long-ago Nebraska Huskers quilt. The yellow is from a short yardage I bought for the stash because I needed a bright.

The pattern is from a Sewing With Nancy session that my mentor watched and calculated out. She drew it out in three size variations and gave copies to us to play with for making lap quilts for the hospital's Passages program.


Finished size is 40 x 49 inches.

The backing is red with white polkadots.
