Two more tops quilted
Two more tops quilted. I've decided that I will work on getting as many tops as I can finished. Both of these have fleece backings. The greek keys top is meant to be a quilt of valor. It is 54 x 69. Not huge, but I think it will be a fine size. My only problem now, it to figure out how to attach a label to it. I didn't think of that before I put the fleece on the back.
The disapperaing 9-patch is much smaller. It is only 36x48, but a nice size for a baby blanket. I don't have a specific recipient in mind, but I'm sure there is someone in my future with a baby. I just gave away the 4-patch posy baby quilt I finished a while ago, so there is always another baby that will need a quilt.
The quilting on both is very simple. I just did concentric "rings" of quilting following the blocks on the greek keys. The baby blanket just has straight lines at varying intervals. Nothing hard...and I used the walking foot on both, so that made it even easier.
