I missed the last of Amy's fabulous festivals so I am determined to be in on the fun this time around.
The quilt I want to show today is one you may have seen before (before it was quilted).
I had intended on giving it to my parents for a house warming gift a few months ago but ... well .... life got pretty busy and I have only recently finished it.
So instead it will be a birthday present for my mum in a few weeks time.
It will live on my parents' dark green leather couch so I used a very plain dark green backing fabric to offset all the colour and movement on the front of the quilt.
I quilted it with simple straight lines on either side of the seams.
This gave little stars of david where the quilting lines met. A nice (and unexpected) touch for a Japanese style quilt that will live in Jewish home.
I know my mum will love it. After all, she bought the quilt kit in the first place!!
I'm so glad to finally be able to give her the finished quilt and see it being used and snuggled under in her new home.
Thanks for visiting.
