To mix things up a bit, I decided to set this one on point. It definitely gives an interesting new twist to the pattern.
The back turned out super cute! I used 2 widths of the panel print and I love the effect it gave! It slowed my progress some because I had to wait for additional yardage to arrive. I'm glad I waited ~ it created an interesting design!
The quilting was simple ~ wavy lines using the number 4 stitch on my Bernina, widened to 5 and lengthened to 4. The binding is the gorgeous plaid in the line which is printed on the diagonal.
In other bits of sewing, I made these bags for the grandkids. They're the Quilted Knapsack pattern from Jodi Nelson at Pleasant Home. My husband laughed because the baby is only 5 months old and not much bigger than the knapsack. He's ready though when it's time to start carrying his stuff!
I'm filling them with goodies and I can't wait to give them to the kids!
