A finished quilt: Kananaskis

I finished the binding on a quick quilt a couple of days ago, so yesterday I took it out for photos. We went back to Elbow Falls; last time we visited, it was covered in snow. This time it was crazy hot and we brought Hank with us this time.


I made this within a week so I could rent the longarm machine at work. I needed something quick so I could practice. I panto-ed this in three hours- and that included unpicking a whole row and somehow managing to do a whole row with no thread.

Back to more photos from yesterday…

The back…

It looks like I’ve only finished up one quilt this year but it’s actually two, nearly three. Too many secrets!

Size – 61″ x 57″
Number of blocks – 20 – 10 of two styles.
Time to make – Piecing a couple of days and quilting three hours- maybe a total of 14 hours including binding.
Fabric – Bo Bunny’s Trail Mix collection plus Kona Forest.
Backing Fabric – Anne Kelle Remix ovals and a bit of Jo Morton Leesburg to make up what I needed, both were 75% off so I paid about $4 a metre for them.
Binding Fabric – More Kona Forest.
Threads – Piecing with Aurifil 50 wt. Quilting with Wonderfil Decobob prewound bobbins (80 wt) and Isacord on top (40 wt).
Batting – 80/20 Hobbs Heirloom.
Quilting- English Oak pantograph from Urban Elementz on Bernina Q24.
