It's quilted!

I have had this quilt on the frame for at least two weeks. I was ready to start quilting when my DD got sick and I went to stay with her for almost a week.
I wasn't in the mood to quilt until Saturday. Now it just needs the binding. I hope to add that tomorrow.

What an interesting way to layout 12" blocks! That "lattice" really makes a statement!

Great job!

And now it is finished! I put the binding on by machine this afternoon. Since it is going to a kid, I decided to do the binding totally by machine. I also caught two edges of the label in the binding so I only have to hand stitch two sides of the label. I must be getting lazy! LOL

Very interesting layout. It looks great! Some child is going to be very happy to get it.

I really like it too! I always machine sew bindings for kids quilts, actually any quilt I know will loved a lot! I'm not so sure it makes it more durable but it sure is faster!

Very pretty quilt. Did you do all the quilting by hand? That was really fast!

The pattern actually makes me envision a campground, with paths between the various camping/activity areas.

Very well planned out...I love it!

Linda, very clever way to make 12 blocks stretch into a nice-sized quilt. When you design a pattern like this, do you draw it out on graph paper first? How do you know which blocks to sew together first? Questions, questions.

Lois, I didn't design the setting of the quilt. It is the BQ2 pattern and I used blocks from a block of the month. The pattern actually shows large print fabrics for the blocks. I thought it would be a good way to make 12 blocks into a larger size quilt. The size is 54" X 72". When I do design a quilt, I use EQ7 on the computer.

The camp where this quilt will go is for kids from elementary to high school age. I usually try to make a quilt that an older child may choose.
The quilts are hung from the balcony rails and the kids choose a quilt on the first day of camp. I've never been there but they always show slides at a guild meeting. The last couple of years, they have taken pictures of the kids with their quilts for the guild members. We get to keep the picture with our quilt.
If there are any quilts left after camp, they give them to children who are in the hospital for cancer treatments.

Beautiful quilt! The kids will love it, and it couldn't go to a better cause. Quilting guild members must derive a great deal of satisfaction knowing that their quilt will brighten the day for some young person.

Very nice. I will have to keep that in mind for future projects. Thanks for sharing.
