The Greatest of These
Topic: Quilting

This quilt was FOURTH on my list to finish. I had the first three already pieced, matched with backing and batting and ready to go on the longarm.

Then I caught a new glimpse of the supplies for this one and I just had to pull it out and work on it.

The supplies included two charm packs of coral solids that I got on sale for less than $5 each. I had cut four fabrics from my stash to have enough for the pattern. Speaking of that, the pattern was only a magazine ad for a fabric line from 3 years back and I couldn't find the actual pattern for it. Fortunately, it was a simple thing to see that I just needed half-square triangles and blocks with two snowballed corners.

The background fabric was from my stash, a print with a little basket-weave look to it.


As usual, my camera colors are off - this is much too orange. Think pink!

I used a new pantograph for the quilting pattern - hearts! and used pink thread top and bottom.


I had originally planned to bind with the same fabric as the outer border, but it just looked unfinished. So I pulled out a red and white stripe and I am SO glad I did.


This is a 52x60lap quilt that will be an engagement gift.
