Pom Pom de Paris Quilt Finish
I'm pleased with my finished Pom Pom de Paris quilt. After going through the washer and dryer, posing for a couple pictures outside, she now lies all soft and warm in my favorite rocking chair. Feels so good when a quilt comes together nicely.
For this small 58"x64" quilt I used a jelly roll, a charm pack and 4 yards of fabric from Moda's Pom Pom de Paris collection by French General. It was close toward the end as I have just enough scraps left to maybe make a pot holder or two.
Pom Pom is quilted with diagonal straight lines using 1 1/2" painter's tape to guide the lines. This is a most excellent quilting idea that I saw the "Empress of the Universe" use in some of her recent blog post entries at imperamagna.blogspot.com. Glad I bought a large roll of tape as I'll be using her quilting idea again.
