Today I would like to show you a quilt I am making for a friend for use on her dining room table. I made a granny square quilt using the red and greens of the Nature's Christmas collection by Sandy Gervais for Moda and added a sashing and border of one of the cream prints. I love how the different arrangements of light and dark fabrics produces such different looking blocks.
The plan is to back this quilt with a simple ivory fabric, quilt it using a meandering stitch (I love how it gives quilts that crinkly vintage look) and bind with my favorite print from the line, a bias plaid in red and white. The quilt is 75" x 75" which makes it a little difficult to get a good picture of it.
I actually made the same quilt design for the same friend earlier this year using Boho Girl by Insights (shown below). She liked the granny squares so much she choose the same pattern for her Christmas quilt. I usually do not make the same quilt design twice, but it is really kind of cool to see the same design in multiple colorways.
I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday!
And now for the giveaway!!!!
My super quilty friend Katy from Lethargic Lass was kind enough to test my Arrows All Around and blogged about it here. She made the most wonderful pillow using the pattern (is below). She is giving away a copy of the pattern so hop on over and say hi to her for me :)
