We've got commas!!
The top half of my daughter's dorm quilt is now all assembled!
This quilt will measure 70'' by 100'' when complete and will be the largest quilt I will attempt - and hopefully successfully complete - to quilt on my home machine.
Early on, I had tried paper piecing the commas but had not been happy with the results. These are appliqued on and I think they fit the font of the letters quite nicely.
Each of the four corners will look like the photo below. I used this tool to calculate the measurements for the square in a square setting triangles.
The side borders and bottom border are all completed and sewn together. I need to trim the rows and then onto the final quilt top assembly.
You can read more about the process of this quilt here and here.
I've one geese (goose?) left over that I will use for the quilt label.
My daughter wants the backing fabric to be soft - perhaps flannel. I am also going to look into brushed cotton.

And congratulations to Caroline for winning the embroidery kit from Snuggly Monkey. I sent you an email asking for your address.
Have a wonderful day! Patty
