Almost there!

September 13, 2008

I've been working like mad on all of the quilting for the daybed quilt, recently.

I'm definitely clear that I'd never do quilting on more than a twin quilt on my home machine – it's rather unmanageable.

That said, this pattern is basically optimal for it – all straight lines and angular. It took a little while for me to figure out a quilting pattern that was relatively symmetrical itself but still accentuated the top, with the non-uniform different squares. I'm really pleased with the design I settled on, and it was a pretty simple thing to quilt. Here's a sketch (red is the pieced pattern, blue is the quilting):

Now I have to cut trim, sew it on, and them hem the second edge by hand. Getting close!
