I'm thrilled to show you another completed UFO! This one was started 2 years ago for a friend's wedding present.
|This one is a good twin size. I forget the actual dimensions, but honest, it fits a twin bed perfectly.|
Okay, back to the quilt. My other friend and I decided the we would each make half of the blocks in a variety of blues and browns. (I blatantly stole that idea from Amanda Jean...this quilt of hers was the inspiration. Here are the template measurements). All of my friend's blues and browns coordinate perfectly, while mine were much more scrappy. Together I think it is a great mix.
|Ahhh...I love to see those KJR fabrics in an actual quilt instead of just on my shelf.|
Since we don't live in the same town (or at that time, even the same province), she mailed me her blocks and the backing, and I sewed all of the lovelies together. I quilted it with a simple stipple. Say that three times, Simple Stipple, Simple Stipple, Simple Stipple!
|The back...I'm loving a pieced back these days. We decided on a tropical print since they got married in Hawaii.|
It feels great to check another one off the list!
