I’ve had this simple quilt sandwich basted and rolled up waiting for its addition of scraps and stitchin’ to make it into a ticker tape. I got to thinking about our limited basting space in the class room and that a simple, modern AND most importantly small quilt could do the trick for teaching the basic threes to quilt finishing.
- Quilt Top
- Quilt Back
The end result, this modern baby quilt! We’ll cover the three’s in the class, and discuss what straight stitched quilting design to execute, plus centering and squaring a quilt and troubleshooting.
The design of the stitching is really seen from the solid front. I think this is Kona Pond. I straight stitched some gentle curves and left a space to straight stitch a third in. I added a few lines of red.
It’s bound in one of my favorite Cake Rock Beach dots.
And the backing is one of my stockpiled Alexander Henry Raindrop Stripe.
I’ve got Add Zip To Your Pillow class next Thursday if you need some new Spring flare. I have my fabric all picked out.
