    10-min Block Cathedral Window Quilted

    I made this quilt some time ago and just now got up the nerve to quilt it. I use a Janome 1600P on a New Joy Gold Standard frame which doesn't give much room for quilting. Had to roll the quilt about three times for each block.
    I used a 4 inch pantograph for the borders, turning the quilt for each of them. I quilted the top border with the panto then free motion quilted the body basting the side borders as I went.
    This pictures shows the quilt on the frame with the body quilting ready to be turned to do the bottom border.

    This shows how I basted the borders as I went.
