Quilt Pieced on the Frister and Rossmann Transverse Shuttle
I made this quilt for my daughter. She likes pink and green. It is a single sized quilt laid out on a double bed to show the border. It was pieced on my Frister and Rossman Transverse shuttle - easy with the seam guide in place. The method for this pattern is shown by Bonnie Hunter on her website Quiltville under the heading Sister's Choice.
For the border I did my own thing, separate blocks of strips. Bonnie's instructions for borders involves laying the whole top out on the floor - completely impossible in a small house.
At the corners the strips cross over each other. Feast your eyes on the mismatched seam.
Every quilt should have its imperfections - it's all part of the charm.
It was long arm quilted by Midsomer Quilting, and because I was feeling particularly lazy they did the binding too. They did a perfect job.
