This is a continuation of two previous posts about the making of Emily's graduation quilt.
The top was all sewn together and Blue polka dot fabric was used for the borders. It's 69" x 87".
I have sent the quilt out to be basted and have started to plan the quilting design. Since this quilt is so white, I plan to use white thread throughout and will try to make sure that the quilting is more modern. This type of quilt, which is very close to an Irish Chain, has lots of spaces for fancy feathered wreaths and other old fashioned quilting designs. However, it just seems wrong to hand something that "dated" to a young high school graduate.
I hope you still make traditional quilts from time to time. They're kind of fun, even though they are fussy to sew!
