It's made from a Sweetwaters Reunion Charm Pack that I picked up somewhere in my travels. I decided to keep the pattern simple and use the values of the fabric to create a simple zig-zag pattern.
Here is a close up of the free motion quilting (FMQ) on the boarders. I used both navy and white thread to echo quilt the zig-zags on the quilt top and then used the navy thread to do a clam shell pattern on the boarder. This was my FIRST attempt at FMQ and though its definitely not perfect, I'm happy with how it came out. It's fun looking back at this quilt to see how much my FMQ has improved since then.
This quilt used to hang on the wall of my old sewing room. Since we moved this fall though, it's still in storage. I can't wait to take it out again though. I always felt it was so bright and cheerful, especially against the bright poppy walls of my old sewing room.
I'm linking up with Stitch by Stich for anything goes mondays.
That's all for today.
