We always make the same quilt. But no two are quite alike! (click here to see the quilt I made last year). The free pattern is from Bonnie Hunter and can be found here. It is put together in nine-patches - with the little bright centers. Very clever, and a great way to use scraps.
This year my recipient wanted a "light green" quilt.
Quilting it was a breeze with my new Bernina740, which has more throat space than my old trusty 153QE. I did mostly straight lines, but did a little bit of stippling just to practice free motion. New machine, new "feel" - will take some time to really get it.
I pieced the backing, just to use what I have and be frugal. It works OK.
Got it into the mail just before my (brief) trip to London.... which I will write about next!
