Welcome to Day 4 of Quiltmaker’s

Back to School Party!

Every day is a little like Christmas because we reveal two more quilts–and what a great variety we’ve had from our fabric sponsors. In case you missed them, here are links to the previous quilts:

Day 1 FreeSpirit and Troy Riverwoods Collection

Day 2 RJR Fabrics and Timeless Treasures

Day 3 Quilting Treasures and Red Rooster Fabrics


Today we’ll give you Part 4 of Frame by Frame and show you two more versions of the quilt.

Frame by Frame Part 4: Quilting and Binding

Layer and baste together the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt the piecing in the ditch as shown below. Quilt a variety of meandering designs in the diagonal sections as shown. Bind the quilt.
