BIQR Floor Quilt #2


Finished the quilting on this one by doing some free motion in the blank places [after outlining the stacks of coins].  Then I made binding that started with 1.5" width strips, which meant that rather a tight fold was needed to cover the first stitching [I do that first one from the back.].  Caught the label in one corner of the back of the binding.  Finished size is 18" x 16".

Now what on earth is that size good for?

Well, anyway I finished the last assignment that Gwen gave us.

Those must be really small pieces Sara, the quilt looks bigger than 16 X 18! Great job on the free form quilting. Love the "ends and odds" of it! Great job getting it finished. Hugs, Finn

that is just the size of a quilt to hang in a small space where one can enjoy its quirky nature. I have several small hangings that I put up in rotation at the end of my kitchen cupboard facing the stairs that lead to my sewing area I have yet to do my BIQR floor scrap patch. Literally, I only picked up enough for a patch.
Best wishes, Kathy (of the Maine cottages)

Hi Sara,
I love your quilting in the blank spaces. Really takes your eye around the quilt.

p.s. I also liked your quilts "in person" at the West Mich Quilters Guild show. My friend (who rarely reads her e-mails, let alone blogs) thought I was nuts being able to recognize your quilts from your blog.
