This is the first quilt I've ever made Mike - sad I know - I've been quilting for about 7 years and this is the first time he's gotten a quilt out of the deal.
What is even sadder is this fabric is cheater fabric. Meaning I bought it this way with the patchwork squares already sewn together. Moda makes these sometimes (use to make them a lot more than I've seen lately) and usually out of 3 Sisters line - which its no secret I adore.
So this fabric was about 5 years old and I finally pulled it out to quilt and bind it. I have loved this line so much. The wovens are so soft and comfy. I thought this would be the perfect quilt for our freezing basement!
The back I might love almost as much as the front - brown houndstooth - it is a heavier weight fabric and I love it. The binding is by far my favorite fabric in the whole quilt. Although the wovens are stretchy and pull apart easily - I'm glad I finally got this quilt off my to do list - and I actually surprised Mike with a quilt of his own.
Mother to two boys, wife, quilter, sewer, fabricaholic, lover of caffine - both coke and red bull - to keep me awake for my late night sew ins. Please join me for a look at what I love most. Family, fabric, sewing, quilting, and a little food thrown in!
