NEW paper pieced wallhanging finished

Recommended Posts

This little quilt was designed by a certified Judy Niemeyer instructor and may become a pattern. After quilting the large Echo Wave quilt, she brought this one to me a few days ago. Since it was an experiment on her part, I suggested we experiment with the quilting as well. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

The quilt is pieced in 4 sections and then assembled so I thought I'd try to just insert 4 blocks that would come together in the center and form a design there. I used my Majestic Block #1 and I think it turned out great. This saved my customer money and ME, a lot of time.

Here's the pattern I used.

Oh that looks so cool! I love the wallhanging. Well, it figures because I love green! The quilting give it some nice movement instead of just following the piecing. Very nice!

Thanks gals! Nadia, I only used 4 blocks altogether; 2 across and 2 down. If the quilt was any larger, I'd have had to split the block and do it in 2 parts. I disconnected the limit switch, moved the machine back to within a 1/4" of the take up roller, aligned from the center of the quilt, adding a 1/8" margin. I also allowed for anough space around the edge to allow for the binding plus just a bit so no pattern would be cut off by the binding.
