Finished Quilt Gift

I have had this one done for awhile now but just have not had time to sit and write about it.  I had won a layer cake of Field Study on the Moda Love blog tour.



My original plan was to make the quilt from the tour but decided I wanted to do something a little simpler and smaller as it was going to be a gift for SIL for Christmas.  I haven't made her a quilt in a long time and thought this fabric line would work really well for them.

I quilted it with an overall leaf pattern. I stitched this quilt up in November had it almost completely done in just over a day.  I had run out of time to finish it up.  The pattern was from the FQS.  




Here is another close up of the quilting. Overall I am really happy on how it turned out.  I still need to work on the stitch length.  Sometimes it just gets a little too long.  I know what I am doing wrong but it is difficult to slow down and be consistent.  

I used Aufil #2600 for the quilting.  I think that might be one of my favorite colors.  I used a Kona blue for the binding.  My SIL's living room is navy and grey and they live on a wooded lot and get lots of animals in their backyard.  I am hoping they love it!



On the back I used all my leftovers and I had a fat eight small pack along with some Kona silver. So happy to not have any scraps left over.

Here is one from the weekend when my friend made the same quilt in a different fabric and they are different.  This was a great pattern!

  1. Really cute and I have the same problem with my stitch length, but my quilting doesn't compare to yours, your leaf design is fantastic. Aurifil 2600 IS the best!

  2. I am in love with those leaves! Looks incredible to me, Beth! And you are so right.... You and your friend made the same quilt.... But they sure are polar opposites! Love them both!
