We recently had a craft auction at work. All proceeds went to SOME (So Others Might Eat). I havent made a quilt since I got back from Iraq (almost a year now) so i thought I would use the opportunity to get back on the horse. This quilt was made fairly quickly (about fifteen hours from first cut to final stitch/wash/press). and incorporates very little ‘quilting’ (just a few straight lines of machine stitch). It primarily counts as a tie quilt where each pieced section is ‘tied’ to the backing. Tie quilts are super quick and kind of ‘folksy’ and charming. The fabric is a lightweight broadcloth in solid wintery colors. I believe the composition is 60/40 Cotton/Polyester. This is the first time Ive used this blend and im starting to really like it. The ironing was much faster and it needed little pressing right out of the dryer.
