Here is the latest quilt that our group Quilting for Kids has made using this tutorial.
I just have to finish up the binding tomorrow and she'll be off to the boy in the foster care system.
I can't wait for him to receive it.
If you helped out in making this quilt, you can go over to flickr and tag yourself in it. I just learned that you can do that. Pretty cool!
I did straight line quilting in the diamond patterns that you see. I was nervous about doing it because it seems like whenever I use my walking foot to straight line quilt I always end up with folds because the fabric gets pulled. I hate that! But I saw Leah Day do straight line quilting as free motion quilting, with a different foot, so I tried it. The lines are not perfect. Occasionally wonky and sometimes flat out crooked, but the over all effect is what I wanted. It was much easier to do it this way, than with the walking foot, where you have to turn the whole quilt so much. So go check out her method. I'll definitely be doing it again.
Here's the wonderful people who helped make this quilt. In no particular order. Would you go and tell them what a wonderful job they did?
