Shabam! Out of nowhere! If I don't blog for a couple of days I guess it's safe to assume that I'm busy completing a project. Introducing: my Treetop Fancy Quilt!
I made the quilt top for this a couple of months ago when I was first starting out but was unmotivated to move further. I thought I didn't like the fabrics, but I lovc them now! Too bad this quilt isn't for me; it's a Christmas present for my in-laws (I don't think they know about my blog). I am really happy with how this turned out. The best part is that I didn't use a pattern. I knew I wanted to make a stacked coins quilt, and I just went with it. I had a Moda off-white jelly roll, so I used that for easy sashing.
I also tried something else new this time: wavy line quilting! So easy and so pleasing to look at. I just quilted a free-form wavy line down the middle of each coin horizontally. I finished the quilting in about an hour.
I think my most favorite part about this quilt is the backing: a print! It's like 2 quilts in one. The fabric is actually from the Fairy Tiptoes line, but since it's Tina Givens, the colors matched perfectly. I bought it on sale for $2.49 a yard so it was like under $8 for printed backing!
I totally forgot to measure this, but it's lap size. Probably should have taken a picture of the entire back too...
