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….
Today we’re sharing our finished quilt at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Crazy Mom Quilts, and Link a Finish Friday.
P.S. There is a sweet Marie Callendar giveaway happening here on the blog.

Love the quilt & your quilting! Think the brown backing is a perfect choice!
I used that pattern with my grand-daughter for her first quilt-making experience. No seams to match!
Beautiful quilt top and your quilting is lovely. Someone will certainly be cheered to receive that one.
Ruby looks so solemn – but maybe she’s just concentrating on a treat that you are holding. :>)
What a lovely finish…and for a good cause. Nicely done.
Oh and Miss Ruby brings out the best in the quilt.
Lovely quilt! I think people worry too much about backings matching the front. When are you going to ever see both at the same time? Relax. It looks great. Whoever is lucky enough to receive it will love it. :) Enjoy.
Lovely quilt and quilting. Backing is also great. Thanks for your charity quilting!!
