Get a Wriggle On! Quilt


 And it's finished!  Way back here,  in April 2009 Maya picked out the fabric for her quilt.

The squiggly quilting was so quick and easy to complete compared to all the other machine quilting methods I have tried.  I saw the technique up on Katy's blog,  and to do it all you need to do is set a Bernina sewing machine on stitch 4 with a stitch length of around 3 and a half.  I quilted the rows 2 inches apart.  Easy!


 Last night the final binding was stitched on - a Lecien red fabric with a small spot. 


And it's just the right size to spread out on the grass and have a chat with the rabbit.

Fabulous quilt (and little girl), this quilt turned out great, and with the spring coming in your country I bet it will get used often enough too! So lots of time to be proud of your work!

That's fabulous, Rachel - and judging by that smile Maya thinks so too!

How gorgeous is she with her sunnies on lying on her new quilt! Its beautiful. I can imagine one day her children are going to lie on that quilt. Kind of makes the time it took to make it seem small.
