Blogger's Quilt Festival - Metro Lattice

I'm entering my Metro Lattice quilt into the Blogger's Quilt Festival  in the Small Quilt Category. I put the binding on it a couple of weeks ago and it's been out in my living room ever since (we'll ignore that I also have unbound quilts that live on the couch, too, until the spirit moves me to get my act together and finish them up).  The sequence of photos that follow are the quilt itself and the process from basting to binding. I did simple straight lines on this and bound with one of the Barcelona prints that I also used as the backing. It finishes at 48"x58".

Pippa helped me baste, as per usual. This picture sums up a lot of things: quilting, cat, and wine.

So many lines! Straight line quilting takes a lot longer than FMQ.

 I couldn't bind without my trusty wonder clips or supervisor in the background.
