Here is Nancy's Batik quilt!
The binding is finished and it's returning to her tonight.
Nancy has been very patient with me, I've had her quilt on a back burner because of machine troubles.
She saw the free motion daisy quilting this past week and was happy, so I was happy too ~
~the flowers actually run from top to bottom, not side to side~

We chose this light blue damask print for the backing of the Great Granny quilt.
It is a one way print, so I pinned to match the print, a pin every 3" or so...took a while , but we were watching the Olympics, so time passed...
can you see the seam? Another happy moment, *vbg*
I'm sharing my "thumbnail" measurements for the Great Granny finish, for those of you who wanted them:
- Follow Lori Holt's directions to complete the 12 1/2" Great Granny blocks, make 20 blocks.
- sashing between the 20 center granny blocks: 2 by 12 1/2" cut, 2" square cornerstones.
- sashing around center, framing the 20 blocks : 2 7/8" cut (almost 3")
- Pieced border construction: the leftover 2 1/2" color squares, sandwiched between 3 1/2" by 2 1/2" background rectangles. 24 color squares on sides, 19 color sq. on top/bottom. The border was trimmed to 4 1/4" afterward.
- floating cornerstones: 3 1/4" center cut, 4 1/2" cut background squares, cut into hst's, trimmed down to 4 1/4 inch to fit the pieced border.
- final border: cut 4"
- finished top: 86 1/2" by 72 1/2"
Hope this helps, glad to share ~
