Johnville - finished at last
I have finished my grandson's quilt which can also be a play mat.The photos are orientated so that a child sitting on the edge has the nearest photos upright - but this dos make the hung quilt look a bit odd.
I was glad that I had not over filled the quilt as there was a last minute reminder that airplanes were required - added 4. These has to be added after quilting - but I don't suppose a 4 year old will mind that the stitching is different.
Technical issues - I realized, while quilting, that a better result would have been achieved if the photos had been applied to the pieces before sewing them together because the applique process caused some "shrinkage" of the underlying fabric and hence slight rippling in the final result.
