Quilt Top for Steve and Lori

This was originally posted over at Suture for a Living on July 10, 2009.


This quilt is in progress.  It is for my brother Steve and his wife Lori.  I finished the top in mid-June.  It measures 56 in X 76 in.  I could quilt it, but would end up with major neck and should spasms as I use a simple sewing machine to do my machine quilting.  I have contacted a friend with a long-arm quilting machine whom I will pay to do the quilting.

The block pattern is one I have used before – Alabama quilt block.

Here is a detailed photo of the fabrics.  You can see the turquoise blue dots in the dark chocolate brown fabric here.

I’ll share the quilt with you once it is finished.  My friend is backed up a month or two.  I will need to do the binding once the quilting is done.
