RSC Crib Quilt Complete -- Slabs with White Rectangle

 This RSC project started in 2014 is now complete.  I'm not very creative on names.  I just call it Slabs with White Rectangle.  I went out in the frost this morning to get this colorful photo.


It's a little gloomy this morning...

I experimented with a non-quilts fabric for the border for this one.  The black border fabric is a stretchy jersey knit (I think).  I gave me zero problems at all!  This crib quilt measures 36" x 50".  It is super snuggly with fleece on the backing.  I used up two of the random striped binding that I had.  

I also experimented with a pantograph.  I'm not that good at following a pantograph (yet).  This was a great place to practice.  I started out following it.  I wasn't too thrilled when my lines of quilting overlapped.  I'm sure the snuggly baby that gets this quilt won't mind at all.  I kept going.  I tried another technique instead of the laser pointer and it got a little better.  I dropped my stylist down on the paper.  I couldn't find my pantograph cover (long, clear plastic piece that protects the pantograph and keeps in in place on my longarm table).  The stylist kept knocking the tape that held the panto in place and it would move now and then.  So about two-thirds of the way down the quilt I just decided to free-hand the rest of the quilting because I didn't want to rip the paper panto any further for now.  It looks like the raindrops started to flow and then morphed into swirls on the bottom.  I think it still looks fine for a charity quilt.  

I'm super happy it is finished.  This project was my OMG for December and it is done!  I am linking up to the finishing party at Elm Street Quilts here.
