the quilt debut

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Brittney and I made a quilt for my Mom's 50th Birthday this summer. We just gave it to her this last weekend in Spokane, hence the reason I am just now showin' it to ya. It was a really fun project!! I made the quilt top which was a chevron (zig-zag) print that came together after hours of measuring, cutting, ironing, and sewing.
 
 

 
  So then I sent it to Brittney, who made the backing and then hand-stitched it together! Pretty impressive, eh? We got a few of our favorite family pictures printed on fabric and used it on the backing. Look how cute my mom is all bundled in the quilt... I think she likes it!

 

And that, my friends, is the quilt! Not bad for the first that Brittney and I have ever done (Just don't look too closely). Definitely made a few mistakes, had to re-do a few parts here and there, but learned a lot. And in the end, I can't wait till I get to work on quilt #2.
