I finished it. This quilt is from Quiltville and the pattern is Dancing 9-Patch. This was an attempt to use up the 2.5" squares that I have. It didn't work. This however will be a gift for a friend of my oldest son for their college graduation. He has three friends and two of them are from grade school.
I have scraps and thought well this would be fun and they won't expect it all.
Here is Aaron's. His favorite color is blue so I am pretty sure he will like it.
I then had the quilt basted by a longarmer. It was nice to not have to pin it but then I did have to pull the threads. Time wise it was probably about the same amount of time. Considering that I hate basting ripping out the basting stitches could be done while watching television. I think that was a win situation.
The quilting was just a large meandering in medium grey Aurfil thread. It went fast and had it quilted up in one night.
I still need practice in keeping my stitches even some get too large and others too small. I have to say it is fun to go through and see all the fabric from lots of different quilts over the years.
I even put a label on this one and named it. I don't really do names but this one is "Graduation Dance" and is about 72" x 86". Aaron will get his degree in Radiology so I am sure he will be happy to be done.
This quilt was part of Q4 Goals so I will link up with She Can Quilt when the time comes. I am so happy to finish this before the end of the year!
Now to get one more done before the end of the year!
