It seems I always have a backlog of finished tops that are not yet quilted. This is mostly for financial reasons. I can manage up to about twin size tops on my old Pfaff 130, but larger ones need to be hand quilted or sent to a quilter. If they are a lot of little pieces (most of my quilts are) they are sent to a quilter. Let the machine handle all those seams!
My records indicate that the Growing Up Odd top was finished sometime the last week of March 2014. It set only about a year waiting for quilting…not too bad. I have some that, well, we’ll just say have been waiting LONGER.
Back to the point–quilter Barbara finished Growing Up Odd beautifully. She used an all over design (well suited to this type of quilt) of swirls with an occasional abstract flower thrown in. I am really happy with the results.
Right now the quilt is on the bed in the guest bedroom reminding me that Spring is just around the corner. If you have the urge to create a Growing Up Odd quilt of your own, check out the tutorial. It is a great leader-ender and the results, while a little odd, are spectacular!
