Sew & Tell Friday- first pantograph

The wonky squares have been quilted!

And I used a pantograph for the first time.  I should have practiced on play fabric first, but I got a little cocky.

 
I am really in love with this quilt.  I used an Ikea sheet for the backing and sashing (for the first time ever).  The jury is still out on that.  I haven’t washed this yet, so I have no idea if it will crinkle and all that good stuff.
                            
 
I can’t wait to try out the pantograph on something else.  I have great hopes for this and can’t wait to see how quickly the learning curve is.

 
This quilt is going to go live with my teaching partner Lizzy who is the peas to my carrots.  The Diet to my Coke.  The Thelma to my Louise.  She had a baby three weeks ago today, and work is just not the same without her.  I miss her like crazy and can’t wait for her to return in April:-)

Thanks, Amy, for hosting Show & Tell Friday.  Without you, this project would sit another week or more waiting to be bound.
