I really love how it turned out, especially because I had a ton of blue fabric that I originally intended to use for the Double Wedding Ring quilt. I’m glad that I changed my mind on that because it looks great here! The pattern fabric is from Red Rooster Fabrics called Vintage Play.
Like the two previous quilts, I also quilted this in a large meandering design. I took this photo to try to show the wrinkly/yummy/just-washed look:
Here’s the back, also with a personalized embroidered label on the white strip:
I am so happy with how it turned out. It was a lot of fun to make, and I have several more quilts I want to make from the book. (I’m looking at Vintage, Dwell, Framed, and Fresh!)
These quilts are the first that I have made to people outside the family, so I was a little nervous. I don’t usually give out handmade gifts, but there are only so many quilts I can keep in the house at one time! These seemed like good entry points to start giving quilts as gifts.
Plus, the personalized label would make it harder for them to throw it in the trash, or give it to Goodwill, right? 😉
