Its a small cot quilt, so didn't take too long at all. The top was already constructed, so it was just a matter of smoothing the three layers and pinning it together. Gemma always like to help when a quilt is on the floor. After all, cats seem to think, isn't that what it is all about, just for them. Then I spent some quality time over several afternoons at the sewing machine, doing some easy straight line quilting with my walking foot, and a few wavy lines in the borders.
When it was time for a break, Gemma was on (sleeping) duty making sure those diggers and bull-dozers didn't run amuck.
Keeping an eye on things while I was absent
Yesterday I applied the binding by machine to the front of the quilt, and had a happy time hand stitching it down on the back. Sitting at the table with the sunshine filtering through the windows - I always enjoy this part of the process. Then it was photo time.
Boy’s cot quilt
As mentioned earlier, I’m finishing off quilt tops started in 2019 from my List of Six. This is from Number 3, Horse Panel Quilt, when I decided to make two for one and assemble the digger squares as leader and enders, while I was stitching the panel together. Hope that makes sense to you.
So I have a choice of what to finish next. Shall it be the horse panel quilt, or maybe a pretty little girl’s cot quilt also made leader and ender style? (You can tell I do like this method of stitching smaller pieces together, you always seem to get so much done without too much effort.) I don't think I've shared working photos of this cot quilt. Either one, they will both be completed before I make a new list for 2020.
