Good morning or afternoon! The Kyle Quilt Exhibit went well yesterday. Thanks to all who have helped. We will be open again this afternoon, and then we get to “take down.” I did get Xander’s quilt finished in time to show at the exhibit.
I took it off the machine Thursday and sewed the binding on. Friday, I hand stitched the binding down. Then Friday evening I helped set up the exhibit.
His quilt it getting a lot of attention because he picked out all the fabric himself. I took him to the quilt shop and asked him to pick out his own fabric. At first, I was a little confused, but I think the quilt came out beautiful! He told me he wanted squares with all the patterns different and he wanted the red fabric between them all. I added the black setting stones in the corners.
Next, we came to my house and he looked at some of my pattern books and chose some 12 inch block patterns. I really enjoyed doing this for him and I hope he has MANY years of enjoyment sleeping under it!
