I enjoyed everything about making this quilt - the simple patchwork, my favorite fabric scraps, using low volume backgrounds, and the challenge of deciding how to lay it out.
This week, I know who this quilt belongs to. So it is time to finish it up!
I chose this gray pin dot for the backing -
and got the layers put together and basted - always my least favorite part of the process.
I'm quilting it with my walking foot in my go-to quilting "design" - diagonal cross-hatching.
(Note to self - it's time to dig into your new book, Walk, by Jacquie Gering - and learn some new walking foot quilting techniques!)
I'll be giving this quilt to my sweet sister-in-law, who lost her husband in a very tragic accident last summer. When she reminded me that their wedding anniversary was coming up, I knew it was time to finish this quilt and get it to her. Maybe it will give her some little bit of comfort. I hope...
Now back to work! Linking up to ScrapHappy Saturday over at SoScrappy.
