Big Birthday Improv Quilt

    Newer Older

    This year, my friends and I are coming up to a pretty big birthday. Not a round number, but just one that feels a little more grown up than usual. I decided to make quilts as presents, and took requests. This friend loves gees bend quilts, and requested colors that are more "her" than "me," and I'm not one to turn down a new challenge.

    This is totally improvised with cream, navy, violet, and a little spring green (couldn't resist something bright). It was fun! It's backed in the same medium gray as the binding, and I quilted it in organic double horizontal lines. After this photo, I added some hand-stitching to finish it off.

    Blogged here.

      I think you need to get your machine serviced - the seams look a bit wonky... maybe your 1/4" foot is faulty!!!

      Fabo!!! The binding is briilant.

      Thank you all so much!! I have to say, my favorite part of this photo might be my slightly unwilling assistant trying to hide his feet...

      I really like this, I can imagine my Grandson liking this on his bed, as well as your female friend. There is a simplicity as well as intrigue in it. Very nice work. Love the splash of color too !
