Scottie Quilt Top Finished

I finished up the Christmas Scottie quilt today. This first photo is all the blocks sewn together with what will become the setting triangles and the sashing.

It is a small child sized quilt. I think it finished at 42 by 52. I have fabric from the same line to use for backing and a wonderful stripe for the binding. I love striped bindings done on the bias. I usually do straight bindings except when I find a great stripe.

Here is the quilt after two cuts, sewing it together each time. I then added the border which is the fabric that the blocks are made from. Didn't it turn out well?

Now I need to decide how to quilt it. The fabric is so busy that a simple all-over design is probably best. The fabric for the backing is black with wrapped presents on it.

Don't forget to comment on the post titled "300th Post Give Away" if you want to celebrate with me in a few days and be in the drawing for a Green/Grocery Tote" made by me.


  1. It did turn out well didn't it. But I'm fascinated by the way it changed. You say 'after two cuts'. What does that mean, what did you actually do to get to the finished result. I've tried working it out but I just can't.

  2. I am curious also about the "two cuts". This must be a pattern or book....

    What a pretty quilt both before and after....


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
