Industrial Dayton - Finished!

"Dayton Landmark Quilts Redux: Industrial Dayton C" (number three of three) made by Pam Geisel, 17" x 42", April 2013; reference photo on the left taken by Ronnie Doyal. 

I finished the quilting then did the binding. Because we don't want any visual interruptions when the quilts hang together, we were asked to "face" the quilts. I used my favorite binding technique although I faced the two sides first, then I laid my outline reference on top of the quilt to figure out where the bottom needed to be. Then I faced the bottom. I measured up from the bottom exactly 42" then added the facing to the top. Then I signed the back. Finished!

The quilts will all be on display soon, I'll be sure to post dates one I know them. Below are some detail photos of my quilt. As always, you can click on the photos to see larger versions.

Fabulous work! It was very interesting to follow your progress as you built the quilt. I like the idea of tracing the pattern to fusible interfacing.
