Techniques Used: machine stitched and quilted
Notes: This was a gift to my mother-in-law. She has since passed away and my father-in-law moved to an apartment; it has come back to me. It did make its theatrical debut in one of the plays my sister-in-law worked on.
Below was the first version of the pattern, but the piecing wasn’t very good. I’m glad I still have it because it can be used for quilting practice.
It’s sized for a double bed. Scrappy. Partially hand-quilted, partially machine quilted. This is where I learned that I don’t like to do hand quilting. The pattern for the quilting is clamshell. Even though I hadn’t started free-motion quilting yet, the clamshells were large enough to quilt with a presser foot and straight-stitch setting.
