Jack and Jill - Revisited

Jack and Jill
baby quilt
44 x 54 inches
It's been almost three years since I finished the Jack and Jill quilt top. For three years it marinated in a plastic bag in my sewing room, waiting for me to purchase a walking foot for my Bernina machine so I could machine quilt it.

I finally purchased the walking foot in December.


After man-handling this small quilt around in my limited sewing space, I have admiration for those who use their sewing machine to quilt full-sized quilts.

  5. Nancy - I loved your choice of the word "marinated". Much more positive spin on our UFOs. I may have to adopt this word myself. The quilt turned out great and I agree that people who can do a full-sized quilt on a home machine are amazing.

  8. Very pretty. I love the way the binding makes the other purples pop, How do you have it hung? It looks very clever.
