Last night I finished the final border of the little repro quilt that I started posting about (here). Next I will sew the top and bottom border to the quilt, and layer it. I've sure had fun with this one.
There will be white flannel as the batting, and muslin for the backing. I am still looking in my stash for one of the four binding fabrics that was used on the original doll quilt. It is interesting with the various binding colors. I will probably quilt it on the diagonal, what do you think?
Here's the original quilt, and I can't tell how it is quilted.
It's Monday, so I'm showing the two quilts on my design wall, and looking at Judy Liquidara's blog to see what everyone else is working on: Patchwork Times Blog
Since it's nearing the 4th of July here in the United States, the second quilt is a little patriotic doll quilt. I plan to sash it with white, and add a red border around the outside. The flags are made with old checks and stripes from my mother's stash - 3 pieces per flag, and they will be 2 in. by 3 in. when sewn into the sashing.
