The Krohn Family Quilt for my niece, Jennifer, is finally done — my March project for Allie’s “Christmas Through the Year” club. I will probably take a break after this and focus on wedding stuff. It’s a good feeling, though, to know I have 3 gifts in the Christmas bank.
Originally, I had planned to do crosshatch quilting in the plain blocks, but after trying it out on one block, I didn’t think it looked that great. Repeating the circle design was my next choice, and I’m pleased with the way this turned out. Because I wanted to keep it simple and not detract from the crossword pattern, I decided to do all the quilting with 2 strands of embroidery floss in colors that match the blocks. Colored floss was also used in the letter blocks which were outline quilted around the letters and circles.
