Oktoberfest Quilt

A month or so ago, my friend Linda asked me if I would make a baby quilt for the silent auction at our church's upcoming Oktoberfest.  Of course I would, only I wouldn't have time to hand quilt it, so I would need to tie it.  I put it together with scraps left from a wedding quilt I'd made earlier in the year, thinking it would be gender-neutral for a baby.  I was planning to tie with white floss but Joe talked me into the teal.  It's nice, but I would have liked it better with the white.

I'm continuing to work on "Pictures at an Exhibition," and will share a little preview soon.

It is a sweet quilt, notwithstanding the teal ties, I think it will be a great contributer to the Oktoberfest-ivities. Just a thought--could you replace the ties in the white border with white ties?

That's very pretty! I think it makes a perfect gender neutral quilt.

I like this - it looks like a lovely one to sew. And once the ties have been washed I think they will settle down and look great. I have now started doing some "tying" with single machine stitches using the memory key. My default is a clasp stitch but there are toy motifs as well and I can programme it to cut the threads as well (Janome Horizon).
