I am really excited to be able to sneak in a Friday Finish right at the end of the day! This lap or nap size quilt was a lot of fun to work on, and I like the back as much as the front. It took me 3 hours on Thursday to get the backing complete. I then took the 4.5 mile round trip walk to my LQS to pick up batting for the project.
I spent 6.5 hours today basting, quilting, and binding the quilt, which brought my total time working on this quilt to 14.5 hours.
I used a variegated blue and white cotton thread and stitched an all over pointed meandering pattern.
Working on this quilt spanned the week for me. I was glad to work on such a fun and “positive” pattern. Thanks again to April Rosenthal for her tutorial in the Moda Back Shop: Positively Perfect Nap Quilt that I used as a basis for this quilt. Pre-wash the quilt was 59″ by 59″ and after first wash it is 56″ by 56″. Just right for an afternoon nap. But since it is pretty late, I will settle for a bath and going to bed for today.
