Hi there and happy weekend to you all! Gift giving has a funny way of making me feel all fuzzie inside. I enjoy making quilts with the intention of giving them away..............do you have that same experience?
You may remember some progress photo's of this quilt that has been in the pipeline for several months. It's called "Metro Hoops", a design by Sew Kind of Wonderful. Fun designs to make with a specialized ruler. See * here* another one of their designs I made, that one was for my brother.
This pattern calls for half a Jelly Roll - 3 Sisters 'Favourites,' a Kona Solid in soft ecru and an accent fabric.
Feathers, curved echos and pebbles worked well to take hold of the naked areas and bring them to life!
Some matchstick quilting and more curved echos and some diagonal lines on the jelly roll rings, all this over Matilda's Own Wool batting and a super soft, ever so creamy flannel backing. The quilt measures 60" x 75".
Pretty happy with how this pretty quilt turned out, even happier when the special friend I gave it to was delighted.......that's the gift giving back to me isn't it!
Fancy seeing the back??
Another couple of quilts that will eventually be gifted to some new babies due this year. Two panels, one that was the perfect size all that was needed was the quilting, the other just needed side borders.
Quilted using 'Splash' panto pattern and flannel backing, machine binding and popped into my gift box waiting for labels when I know the babies names.........that won't happen until they are born!
I have a couple more gift quilts to share but it's all about timing folks! Until then it's back to my customers lovely quilts.
