    Thin Blue Line

    My daughter requested this as a gift for her friend's wedding. Both the bride and groom are police officers. It's roughly 77" x 66". I used tiny blue/white chevron minkee for the backing and 3" strips for binding that were leftover fabrics from the blacks. I think it turned out really nice. It's bigger than the example she asked me to pattern this from and has a lot more quilting. Though I did try to quilt it simply as to not draw away from the quilt theme. Finished pictures were hard to take because it was dark and rainy all Saturday.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    It's GREAT! I'm liking that wavy quilting a lot. Wish my machine had a serpentine stich!

    I actually drew the wavy line on using a bowl. I used my walking foot for the quilting.
