TGIFiddlesticks

Fiddlesticks is ready for its quilt label and then can be given to its unknowing recipient. It was started over Easter weekend last year and it feels great to have it finished.


I quilted in the ditch along the gold sashing/border. I completed the 60-degree grid quilting using the masking tape method.

You can see the resulting diamond shapes from the close-up of the back of the quilt.


Reminder for those of you who own the same pattern: I deleted the extra wide outer border because I know this is going to be used as a sofa quilt and didn't need the extra size. As you can tell from the picture on the queen-size bed, this size is going to be perfect for a throw.

Ready to move to the next project,
