Look what just came out of the dryer! It is my Scrap Dance Tango Mystery Lap Quilt. It is 57 x 71 inches. I started this back in January as part of Carole's Scrap Dance Tango--Mystery Quilt 2016. Visit here for more information:
I quilted it with loops on my mom's longarm on Friday and I got the binding attached yesterday afternoon. I started binding it last night and got it about half done. Then, I woke up this morning and finished up binding it for Slow Sunday Stitching. See everyone else's inspirational handwork here:
The backing is from my stash and is a Jo Morton print I picked up for $3 a yard several years ago. I always buy bargains like that for backings and set them aside until I have the right quilt for them. Everything does eventually get used!
I did put a label on this one as it will be a gift.
My hubby removed a soccer wall this week he had built for a daughter years ago, but he left up a couple of the posts and strung a wire between them for me to use for quilt pictures. It worked perfectly and allowed me to take pictures of the backing and the front without having to move it.
This quilt is only made with one kind of block, but by turning it a secondary star design emerges. Mine was made with 63 blocks set 7 x 9. My only purchase was a couple of yards of the blue fabric (also from Jo Morton) that I used for the border and binding. My border was cut 4.5 inches and provided a nice looking frame for all that scrappy goodness.
Next up is my Butterfly Garden Tablecloth Quilt. I machine quilted it on Friday and hope to attach the binding this afternoon and have another finish in a day or two. I only have three more weeks of my summer left and despite getting off to a slow start with my surgery and work training, I am finally getting some UFOs done, better late than never!
