I made myself a quilt! I know, I've made a lot of quilts that I have shared with you on this blog. They are usually a gift for a new baby or sick friend. I also make them for family members. I guess I have made a few dozen over the last few years. But I rarely make one for myself.....
When I started this quilt I wondered who I would give it to. I loved the fabric and colors sooo much. Then it occurred to me that if I like it so much there was no reason why I couldn't keep it! More specifically, I could use it in my vintage trailer as a lap quilt. Yippee!
I used fabric from Moda's line Vintage Picnic and a red gingham I had in my stash. The backing is a red and white chevron fabric.
Machine quilted it on my domestic machine using Westalee ruler foot and shell template.
I seriously loooove how easy it was to use and how smooth the quilting looks. Might have to do a post on the ruler foot and templates.........
Don't you just love giant ric rac?
Here is a pic of the backing. This quilt is so cheerful! I can't wait to take the trailer out this summer and cuddle with this quilt while reading a good book and eating chocolate.......mmmmm.
