William's Quilt All Finished!


I have finished William's Blue Squares baby quilt.
It ended up measuring 53 inches square.


I'm really pleased with how this one has turned out.
What I am really pleased with is how flat it lays. Seems the Quilting Gods were smiling on me the day I squared this one up.


No pucking woes to be seen now...


Grace and William on the label. Fitting that they are both wearing blue as well.

Upper thread tension - 4.0.
Stitch width - 2.0.
Stitch length - 3.0.
Top thread - Aurifil 50.
Bottom thread - Aurifil 50.
Direction of quilting - Clockwise, always clockwise.
