Quilt #2

December 27th, 2018

This was the year of quilts for Christmas. I finished this quilt top (also acquired in a thrift store fabric grab bag) for my neighbor. Orange is her favorite color, so I knew she’d love it. The backing was a sheet from my stash, the binding was made from two different scraps of fabric which I got in a different fabric grab bag.

I quilted this one by hand as well, which was an enjoyable evening activity. No doubt this quilt will be loved and put to good use for years to come.
