Today I'm joining up with the Blogger's Quilt Festival
over at Amy's Creative Side blog.
Last spring there were over 500 entries so this should be fun.
This is a lap size quilt I made for my sister-in-law, Patrice for Christmas.
I wanted to make her something special as she is not only my sister-in-law but has been my friend for 45 years. I decided to make it in late November so I didn't have time to do anything very involved with lots of piecing. I wanted fabric with a bold but soft look and I found the perfect one at my local quilt shop. I just love this print....
It's one of those 'I Just Can't Cut It' fabrics. I've tried to zoom in on the machine quilting but it's not showing up well. It was long arm quilted by Amy Smith in Richland, WA.
Above is a close-up of the border. And below is the pieced back.
Patrice was happy with her quilt and I'm so glad I decided to do it, even though it was barely done in time for Christmas. I purchased enough fabric to make myself one also so we could have twin quilts. Of course you know how that can go. Mine probably won't get done for awhile!
Be sure to click on the Quilt Festival Link above (tried but couldn't grab the button for you) and check out all the other quilts. I'm sure there will be lots of yummy eye candy!
Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment as I would love know you visited.
