Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Design floor Monday

There’s nothing new on my wall. But there’s a quilting finish on my floor. It went on the machine today, got quilted, taken off and trimmed, all in one day. I’m not 100% happy with the quilting, it’s a bit unevenly distributed. But I’m saying finished is better than perfect.

That sounds good, but, this was supposed to be finished a year ago, before our grand daughter Abbie was born. She turns one on Thursday, so I decided it was time to put a rush on it. The written quilting on the left side is kinda hard to read. It says:
“Sleep my child and peace attend you, all through the night.
Guardian Angels God will send you, all through the night”

So, today makes three posts in three days. I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep this up, but it’s a good start to the New Year. Blogging more frequently is one of my goals for this year. I want to get the binding made up for it tonight, so I’m going to link this up to Judy’s Design Wall Monday, and then get busy on that binding.


  1. I do like the modern design of this quilt. I have been thinking about making some more modern quilts that have lots of negative space for me to practice my free hand and ruler work. I know that it will be a steep learning curve but I won't learn or improve if I don't practice.

  2. Disappearing Four Patches are one of my favorites! I really like the way you laid this out. Nice quilted sentiment. She'll love it.

  3. I love the Disappearing Four Patch block, too, and really like your setting. How wonderful that you quilted the prayer in the white. It will be a treasure forever.

  4. I remember this quilt! Glad to see that it's almost done - I can't believe that Abbie is a year old already!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
