Making a quilt for a precious person that you love, is one of the best things in life! Giving that quilt to the person is even better! Recently, I took time out to make a beautiful, yet simple, quilt for my daughter. She loved the Timeless Treasures, Tonga Treats Bouquet 6 inch strips collection. She wanted a simple 6 inch striped quilt with no fancy cutting or piecing. She just wanted stripes with a border. So, I created a quilt with stripes and a mitered border. Then, she said some of the best words to me…quilt how you would like to quilt it.
The Quilting – Free Motion Of Course!
Really??? I love that! I thought of my daughter and all the things she loves. She loves swimming, books, teddy bears, dolls, music, Jesus, and ice cream cones! I added things such as a string of pearls in the design, because every girls should have a nice string of pearls. I quilted flowers cascading over the quilt, because every girl should have flowers. I wanted this quilt to be one that she used throughout her years.
On the back of the quilt, I used Michael Millers Fairy Frost fabric, which is sparkle-ly. (That was a main requirement.) She loves it!
I loved quilting this quilt, because I was able to bring the beautiful character of my daughter to the quilt! I hope that she gets many years of use from the quilt.
