This fun quilt top was made by my mom from a kit. She did the piecing and asked me if I would finish it for her so she could give it to her great granddaughter for Christmas. Yes, of course I can.
Since there is so much color and pattern going on in these fabrics, I went with an all over free motion flower design for the quilting. In general, it just adds texture.
But on a few of the blocks the flower design stands out.
I think this is my favorite block. You can see two flowers here.
The kit came with backing and binding fabric, so it was easy to quilt and assemble. Once I decided on the quilting design, the rest of the decisions had been made for me. The quilting is done with a white 50 weight Aurifil thread.
The finished quilt is approximately 37 x 45 inches. It makes a perfect play mat or snuggle quilt for a little girl.
