A Quilt For My Mom

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Finished while vacationing at the Oregon Coast ... a quilt for my mom!  I thought of her the entire time I sewed on this quilt because she loves these colors, and they are found everywhere in my parents' home.  I knew I could never sell it because it reminded me so much of her.

Quilt Stats:

  • Fabric:  All Thimbleberries quilt-shop quality fabrics, quilt top and backing.
  • Batting:  Warm and Natural 80/20 cotton/poly, thin.
  • Quilting:  Long-arm quilted on Mrs. Singer using a meandering flower stitch.
  • Binding:  Thimbleberries fabric, attached by machine for durability with mitered 45-degree corners.
  • Size:  46" x 56", small lap quilt.

This is the first time I have ever pieced a multi-fabric backing!  I was worried that the stripe wouldn't end up straight when I quilted it on the Mrs. Singer, my long-arm quilting machine, but somehow it ended up just fine.  Although with the price of fabric, it really is cheaper to buy extra-wide backing, especially at, which I do for very large quilts.
