This is my Egg Money Quilt from the Eleanor Burns book of the same name. I started this as a BOM at the LQS in August 2005 and finished binding Jun 2007. I know the block in the lower right corner is not in the book. I wanted a quilt for my king size bed so added a few. Without looking in the book I couldn’t tell you which others I added.
I did this quilt using Quilt-As-You-Go techniques.
To mark the quilting in the framing, I printed circles and diamonds onto labels and then cut them out. I used each label several times until it wouldn’t stick to the fabric any more.
In the sashing I found a diamond cable in one of my books and cut it out of template material to trace around. I just reused that cable the other day.
The blocks themselves I just did simple outlining. I can’t remember how the green inner border is quilted and the outer scalloped border has two rows of quilting following the scallop.
I used Warm and Natural batting so this quilt is heavy.
