I’ve been working on this quilt for a long while and it’s nice to have a finish!
A friend had sent me a stack of 8 fat quarters thinking they would make something nice for my new great nephew. I immediately thought of the Pow Wow pattern that I had purchased but hadn’t yet used. It seemed like a good pattern for a boy.
The top went together really well. I do, however, have a zillion and three leftover half square triangles. The pattern gives suggestions on how to use them, but I think they will be put aside for a way in the future project.
The quilting was simple. I did rows of straight lines in one row of blocks and alternated with a stipple in the other rows. It was fairly quick and looks nice I think. I backed it with a herringbone flannel which has a similar shape to the pieced blocks.
Not being a fan of labels – I know, heresy – I did do a little embroidery on the binding.
When I took over the quilt I did get a big smile from my nephew. I’d like to claim it was because he liked his new quilt, however he’s just really a happy little guy and always has a ready smile.
A bit of a crooked picture, but that’s what I get for giving away the quilt before I check my photos. Oh well, at least you can see all the colors.
So nice to have a finish!
