My finishing UFO's continues as I spend a few days at the lake with Kristy. It is so peaceful here. I tend to rest but yet get a lot of sewing done at the same time.
I quilted Holly leaves in the quilt border. There was holly in the border fabric so it was a nice compliment.
The fabric of one of the blocks had swirls so I overall quilted the body with a swirling pattern.
The back is scrappy. it is made of the leftover block fabric.
This is the quilt top my 85 y/o mother made before she left in December. I love the simplicity of it. The block rows in diagonals show off the beautiful Christmas fabric which by the way all came off the shelf in my stash as I was looking for fabric for her to stay busy with during the first snow/ice storm. I love using stash fabric to produce a beautiful result with a small amount if effort.
I put the quilt together on the Monday before Christmas. On Christmas Eve I quilted it. Yesterday I bound it with a scrappy binding. Perfect lap size during chilly, cool days.
It is going to be a beautiful day here at the lake. I will spend some time out doors between sewing and going with Kristy to the movies. Tomorrow it turns bitterly cold again. We must enjoy the beautiful weather while we can .....every day counts.
Makes me happy to know I have another beautiful project finished waiting in the wings for next year!!
