Here's the smaller of the two charmed whirlygigs I made. This one is completely finished. I love to use my walking foot, so on this one, I quilted straight lines...1/4 inch away from each straight seam, then did some straight-line stitching on the 2 inch border. On the wide border, I sewed lines, not measuring...just going by eye...along each border...which made little squares in each of the 4 corners. I am very happy with how this turned out. And, I am totally in love with the creamy buttery color I used on the backing! It's a Kona solid, though I cannot remember the name...will definitely get more of this. This little quilt measures about 37 inches square.
The larger one, measuring about 54 x 60 (something like that) before washing...the top is done, but I need to sandwich it with the backing and batting and then quilt it. Will probably just do some free-motion meandering on that one.
Don't you think these would be so dang cute as a lap quilt set...for mother and child??
