It is always fun to make a quilt for me…I love the process. It is is even better when you are inspired by someone else…someone who selects some of their favorite fabrics and wants you to make them a quilt. One of my best (and favorite…shhhh don’t tell anyone) friends from college asked me to make her a quilt. She has always loved bright fabrics and mediterranean style. She picked out some great fabrics. I had fun with all the fabrics … front and back of the quilt. I start out by sewing large strips together…
I then flipped some of the strips and added some accent borders. I also decided to add a special monogram to the front of the quilt. I like how it turned out.
Here’s the front of the quilt…nice and bright!
You can see the front of the quilt and the back of the quilt here together. The back had more of a blue mediterranean feel.
Here’s the entire back of the quilt. This is a solid fabric panel…a cheater fabric they call it. Looks great as a back.
I used some new variegated Aurifil thread that I just purchased. It is a special Tula Pink thread collection. You can find it here.
I used an orange / yellow variegated thread to quilt the top which worked great; the one in the top right of the photo.
Here’s the final product…it’s already well on it’s way to it’s new owner…hope she loves it!
Stay tuned later this week for some more quilts and a few cookie recipes!
Have a great week!
