Thanks to the long Memorial Day Weekend here is a FINISH! This quilt is one of two that I have worked on for quite a while using the leaders and enders system that I learned at Quiltville. This week I am working on the other one which is identical, except for the borders, and have made quite a bit of progress.
This is a first for me in a couple of ways. One, I washed and dried the quilt before giving it away, which gives it that crinkly quilt feel and secondly, I have listed it in my Etsy Shop. Too bad I don't know anyone who is expecting twin boys, since I will have the second one finished soon.
I am enjoying using my cordless steam iron. I can't believe how much better the quilt squares turn out using steam. I am also striving to have more accurate piecing with an end product that lays FLAT. Paying more attention to how the seams are pressed so that they butt up to each other is making a big difference. I often wondered how the quilters whose quilts were featured in quilting books or some quilting blogs achieved such flat quilt squares. Now I can say that my quilt squares are ending up flat too.
Here's a rocking chair and a little boy's quilt. All we need is a baby boy!
