ABC 123

This ABC quilt has waited for almost 3 months to be quilted, and now it's finished!  Done in primary colors,
it's my same pattern as the quilt top I used for testing an Innova machine, except that one was in pastels.
Also, there was a slight change in the design--no four patch squares in the primary one.
Here are some quilting closeups.  The background is a simple arching fill, with ruler work in the blue and yellow parts, and a swirl design for the green strips.   The Innova made those so simple!

This one also has a machine sewn binding, using a interesting technique to form the green piping. 
A Yahoo list mom suggested it, and I thought I would try it on this quilt. Certainly gave this quilt a neat finish!
Update: check out the piped binding tutorial!

Happy Quilting!

  1. Great quilts and quilting! Love the faux piping on the binding! Aren't Innova's great? I've had mine for 5.5 years and use it most every day!!!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
