My Niece's Sixth Quilt
My niece, Miss S, bought a stack of five inch scrappy flannel squares at a local quilt shop. On her last visit to Utah, she brought them to my house. We laid them out on my design wall to determine a balanced layout. Then she sewed them together at my Mother-in-law's house.
We quilted it on the Bernina Q24 with the Qmatic. She chose a cute flower design.
It turned out so cute on the scrappy flannel patchwork quilt.
While the computer is fun and has great results, I could have quilted it faster than it took me to set it up on the computer.
She chose a soft pink flannel for the backing and binding.
This is the first quilt that she did most of the binding herself. She did great mitering the corners!
Here she is with the finished quilt (on a really windy day). She left for home the next day.
Miss S has already pieced her next quilt. It is a jelly roll race. I look forward to her next visit to Utah so that we can finish it together.
Quilting with my family is so rewarding.
