Tandem Quilt

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

My DH and I will be hosting the Alabama Tandem Weekend March 23-25. The previous hosts had made some beautiful Adirondack chairs as a prize for a trivia game, and we wanted to continue the tradition. DH has worked so very hard on the arrangements, and I can't build chairs, so I decided to make a quilt. It has gone through several versions, but I have finally finished it.

It is a full size, and the pattern is Jewel Box. I made the top completely with pieces from my scrap box under my cutting table. I did purchase the backing fabric because I didn't have a piece large enough.

The biggest problem I had was getting the applique centered on the back. I loaded it upside down in the frame so I could echo stitch around the applique. Not gonna do that again.

I'm still pleased with how it turned out. Now to get the trivia quiz questions together.
