Another quilt for MIL...

My MIL's Balloon quilt didn't really inspire me today when I eventually made my way downstairs, but it needed to get done. It measures 38.5" x 44".











backing fabric


Definitely nothing that would win me any awards.....but as (I believe it was Candace?) who said something like......."Done is better than perfect." Or maybe it was Linda (TX)?.....

Anyway.....this lil' quilt confirmed that I MUCH prefer to quilt using a pantograph than freehand. Not having a stitch regulator to help me when I get to corners...it's a bit difficult. However, an edge-to-edge pantograph doesn't have any (many) corners that I need to stop for....

I think it looks great. I'm sure a pantograph would have been pretty, but this is original and fun. Any more midget blocks in the works?

Amy, I think it is wonderful. I don't even attempt hand guided any more. Once I went computerized that was it for me. I think you did a great job.

Done is better than perfect anyday! Looks great, Amy...It looks like you had fun and that's an important thing too.

Umm, the ice cream cake looks delicious. What a sweet treat!
