“Home Sweet Home” the Finished SIL Quilt

I did it! 6 months later the civil war era fabric quilt is done. Yahoooooo!

P1010670I made the label with my NEW Janome 7700 (more to come on that in another post).

I don’t know much about free motion quilting yet so I stuck with stencils.

P1010671I used this one on the border, with a chalk rolling tool.

P1010669Which I think came out rather well.

And I used this one intermittently within the quilt using a wash away marker (which washed out perfectly, huzzah).

P1010673Which looked like this after washing

P1010667I also did “stitch in the ditch” around all of the triangles and parts of the 8 section stars. The pattern itself came from a McCall’s quilting book from back in October 2013 called “Pinwheel Pinache”.

P1010666 In the end mine looks like this 🙂 It’s about double bed size, hopefully not too big to cuddle with. I also used wool batting (she lives in North Carolina). It’s a little lofty but hopefully still good on the couch.
