A short while ago I posted this popular free quilt pattern tutorial to create a queen-size quilt which combines the Disappearing 9-Patch piecing method with 10″ precut squares (layer cakes).  Today, I’m happy to report the quilt is finished, longarm quilted and bound! Hooray!

After watching this video called “Loopy Clams” by Lyn Durbin, I decided I had to give that quilting style a try.  My loops and clams are echoed quite a bit more than the original style presented, though.

I quilted the design on my HandiQuilter machine and used Glide Thread. That thread left ZERO lint in my machine. It was beautiful and so shimmery when I was finished.

The design really does quilt rather quickly and is pretty forgiving.

I say that, but it turns out if you get going too fast and don’t “baste down” the right and left sides of the quilt as you work…

Thank goodness I was able to get a little seam ripper into the middle of the quilting foot to take out the stitches. Everything turned out fine, but Holy Error Message, Batman, I didn’t even realize that could happen. Livin’ and learnin’ !

The Loopy Clams longarm design gives a pretty neat texture to the whole surface of the quilt.

I cannot wait to see it washed with fantastic shrinkle all over. You know shrinkle, right? Shrink and crinkle as created after the first trip in the washer/dryer.

You have to see the back, too. It is a bit green and a bit brown.

All in all, this baby is bound in stripes and ready to do whatever it is going to do next. I do think I’m going to look back on my blog in a few years and think “I WAS really stripe obsessed.” But yes, yes I am.

The layer cake or precut 10″ squares used in this quilt is Stitch by Betz White.
