Piper's Polka Dots, Part 3

Piper's Polka Dots
43" x 51.5"
For my granddaughter Piper
Original design
Partly from stash

I finished Piper's Polka Dots on Wednesday night.  It's a quilt for my four-month-old granddaughter Piper.  You can see the inspiration for the quilt here.  Lots of photos and details of my process follow in this post as well as in two previous posts.  Enjoy.

Quilt sections joined, pressed open.  Used glue and pins, but wished I'd used Wonder Tape.  The glue didn't hold in all places, I kept sticking myself with the pins which were on the bottom of the work, and actually sewed through a flower head pin, which took a while to undo.  It was not a fun time.

Last circle attached with 505 spray.  Will zigzag around edges, then quilt a spiral.  Back of circle will have extra quilting because part of it was quilted earlier by mistake.  Oh, well.  Unquilted areas (left of the tape to center) to be filled in with loop-de-loop free motion quilting, which should blend in with previous quilting.

Design notes

Quilt finished. Binding is same pink as the circles.  I could have used green, but the pink ties the whole quilt together and gives a little pop.  Glad I made that decision.
