A week of finishes - Day 3 :: Children made Project Linus quilt

This wonderfully colourful quilt was made by Home Educated children at a local group.  4 children took part in making this and really enjoyed the chance to use a sewing machine.

It was a simple case of quilting and binding for me ....

I decided to try out a star pantograph.  You may recall that I am very new to pantographs, my first attempt can be seen here, and I am still not quite sure  what I think of them or my skill in using them!

Whilst I was doing it I thought I didn't like the way it looked but once it was off the frame and on the wall I thought it looked OK!

This is my 4th finish from my 2016 Finish Along Quarter 3 list (Number 17 on the list)


  1. I have not tried pantographs myself, but I think the stars and loops are sweet on this quilt.

  2. They did a great job matching their points. I think that panto works great on this piece.

  3. The children did so well with making this quilt. I think your quilting looks great Abigail. Pantographs can be tricky to quilt but I think you have done well here. We are our own worse critics.

  4. I think it looks great! I like the stars and I love the bright fabrics the kids used.

  5. The bright fabrics are wonderful! This would be such a fun quilt to receive. The star panto sure is a winner, and so much fun!

  6. I'm not sure what a pantograph is but i do like the way the quilting is

  7. This looks great and the kids did a wonderful job piecing it. I'm sure when it lands at its new home, it will be well loved.

  8. Sweet quilt and great cause! Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global FAL hosts
