Rainbow Squared!

Finished quilt
I am so glad that I jumped right into working on the quilt for my ex-SIL even though I didn't need it for a couple weeks. This past week has just flown by as time does and I really didn't want to stress about getting the quilt finished and now I don't have to.

I have been working the past few days and I just haven't had the energy to do very much sewing, hence, no blogging either. ;)

The good news for me is that I did find small amounts of time and energy to get the binding on the quilt and finish it up. I was able to take advantage of bits of quiet time in the mornings to hand stitch the binding to the back. Those small moments added up to a finished quilt that I think turned out fabulous and I hope Pierette will think so too.

Field of Flowers by Keryn Emmerson
I have decided to call this quilt Rainbow Squared. I quilted it using a flower pantograph and I used white thread. I needed to make some marks on the panto to make sure that I followed the lines in the correct direction. It can sometimes be a bit confusing when you are moving along as to which line to follow. ;)

The quilt finished at 53" x 66"- not a large quilt by any means but I think it will be fine for her to use on the couch or on the end of her bed to pull up if she is chilly.

I think the binding really is perfect - front and back!
I have today off work and I dropped my car off this morning for some routine maintenance. I will be glad to have that done before the long drive to my brother's. One more item checked off the list of things to do!
