GRANDMA'S ATTIC QUILT
I used all scrappy prints in this little lap quilt; the border and accent is in maroon and muslin. This quilt measures 40" X 58". I machine pieced this quilt and machine quilted. But, I always need to add more so I added some hand quilting. Below is a close up of the stitches.
I used different shapes on different areas of the quilt. I only hand quilted on the muslin color fabrics. It never seems finished to me until you have a bit of hand quilting done. Below is another photo of the quilt with better lighting. This was a fun quilt to make.
I have not had a chance yet to work on my little Christmas Around the World quilt top. We spent time making a quilt design board instead. My husband put up a backboard and stretched flannel over it for me; it measures approximately 60" X 72". Now I can place quilts on the wall and take pictures to share with you. Negative 17 degrees was our low for today. Having a special place to sew and quilt, and stay inside is so wonderful.
