What special projects do you have hanging at the end of your hallway this month? I finished a new quilt the other day that I'm excited to share.
This quilt is for my nephew. My SIL commissioned me to sew quilts for their three kids. The first was the bubble quilt for their daughter. Now their middle guy will have his own quilt. My SIL wanted to keep this really simple so we just went with stripes. She didn't want it to be too kid-ish as she wanted it to last for years. The little brother will get a coordinating quilt later this year or early next when I can squeeze it in.
I quilted the stripes differently. It was great practice for FMQ. I'm loving the squares on the orange rows. A few of my ideas came from the FMQ book by Angela Walters.
Here is the back. I just used up what I had leftover from the stripes, and added the horizontal orange stripes for length. The finished size is about 66" x 90". The fabrics used in this quilt are all Kona colors--Iron, Marine, Orange, & Lime. I used coordinating thread colors for quilting.
My different quilting designs show up much better on the back.
Now it's your turn. Link up your favorite finished project for the month!
