Wash Day

Yeah! The quilt top is finished! Isn't it awesome? Here are some more pictures:

Oh, I don't think I will give this quilt away!

It was a lot of fun appliqueing the clothes, which I did using Aurifil monofilament (easy to use because it does not keep breaking!) and a very small zigzag stitch.

I am still trying to decide which outfit I like the best. My stash of 1930s fabric is not too large, yet the combinations seem to have worked.

Oh, it looks like I still need to applique the clothespins, but that will not take long at all.

The pattern is called Wash Day by Coach House Designs. As usual, I modified it a little bit: I opted to use a white background, and only used the four-patch block as opposed to three different blocks as the patterns. I used HeatnBond Lite to fuse the shapes. I will not add a border; instead, will quilt and bind it.

I am pretty giddy with this finish. I will link it to Crazy Mom Quilts and Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Quilt Shop Gal, Forth Worth Fabric Studio, Sew Fresh Quilts, and My Quilt Infatuation...

Before you go, don't forget to check block 11 of our City Girl Sew Along! Then, enjoy the weekend,

I love the washing line theme. What a great idea for a quilt pattern. It has turned out beautifully with your choice of fabrics.
