A Quilt for My Mom

6 Comments

Good Morning!

Well, it’s Friday and I have a finish to share with you guys.  My Mom just recently had surgery and the day before her surgery, I received this text from her:

Where is my Blankie?

I made my mother a small quilt when I first started and I felt not only was it time for an update but she would also need something special for her recovery.  So while she was searching her house for her “blankie” I was creating this!

I used a shot cottons Jelly Roll and let me just say these pictures do the quilt NO justice.  This rainbow is  the most stunning rainbow.  If you want to make something similar, it’s too easy!  I finished this quilt in a day!  I pulled off each strip in the order it came in and sewed each strip to each other.  Then I backed it with 2 yards of fabric and a half yard of bias tape.  The backing I chose was  a deep ruby red  and this stunning binding.

I quilted it with Aurifil on my Bernina (Princess Bea).  I love how the quilting thread looks different in each strip of color.
