Blog readers often send me quilt tops. I machine quilt the tops and bind them. Then the finished quilts are sent off to a worthy charity. This is one of those….
This quilt was simple in design but awesome in color. I am guessing that it was made with a layer cake using this pattern. The reason I am guessing that is because I made a quilt using that pattern and it was similar to this one.
This is throw sized. I really like the colors a lot.
I am tried out a new to me free motion motif. This one is from Step-by-Step Free-Motion Quilting: Turn 9 Simple Shapes into 80+ Distinctive Designs Best-selling author of First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting. If you don’t have this book and want to free motion, I HIGHLY suggest getting it. The book is my favorite and most used.
I used a tan thread on the top and a brown on the bottom. I didn’t have a good backing but finally decided that I thought the brown would look okay. All of the fabric on the front of the quilt aren’t brown but they are earthy tones so I thought it would work.
There it is all finished and ready to be shipped out.
It’s nice to have another quilt on the finished pile….
P.S. There is a sweet Marie Callendar giveaway happening here on the blog.
