Back a few weeks ago I posted my work in progress on a new quilt I was calling Over the River. I have know finished the quilt and renamed it Looking Glass.
The quilt was so fun and easy to make. I needed a quick, little finish and this quilt was exactly that.
In my effort not to purchase fabric to make a quilt backing, I pieced a back using an extra row of blocks along with some Kona white. I almost like the back better than the front. A dark brown print (so old I am not sure what line it was from) finished off the quilt as the binding.
For the quilting, I used a loopy quilting pattern. The pattern looks like a cursive "l" over and over and over again. I start at the left hand side of the quilt and work my way towards the right. I was able to quilt using this pattern without any marking of the quilt (yeah!) because the seam lines within the blocks and sashing formed lines.
I have had a number of quilters ask if I was going to write this quilt up into a pattern and so I happy to say that I am working on putting the finishing touches on the draft of the pattern. The pattern is going to include baby, lap, twin, queen, and king sizes. If anyone would like to pattern test or review, just let me know :)
