Last week I finished up the quilt top for the American Made Brand challenge.
It’s pretty big, about 70 inches square. My husband suggested quilting it in concentric circles (like the Nature Baby Quilt I made earlier this year), but I would have to do that on my domestic sewing machine and I think the layers would get shifted around a lot. I had to cut quite a bit off the edges of the Nature Baby Quilt after quilting because of that. That wouldn’t work for this quilt since it has a border. Any suggestions?
I was able to make the entire bricklayer section from ripped strips just like the Gee’s Bend Quilters. The final 1” border was precisely measured and cut with a rotary cutter.
I decided to go with wonky friendship stars in the borders.
While I’m not enamored with this quilt, I think it looks pretty good from a distance.
I am really looking forward to getting this quilt finished! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
