You may remember that a couple years ago I made my dad a quilt for Christmas. Well, I still hadn’t gotten around to making a quilt for my mom. That changed this year when I ran across the Sweet Life line by Cori Dantini for Blend Fabrics. One of the fabrics in the line was a panel featuring 3 girls, and since I have 2 sisters, it was the perfect inspiration for a quilt.
I designed my quilt around the panel fabric using 6 and 12-inch economy blocks in coordinating colors and prints.
I purchased 2 prints from the line – Tiny Seeds in Blue and Pure Delight in pink – to pull everything together, but most of the fabric came from my stash.
I really love how the quilt came out, and I’m hoping that my mom does too.
For the back of this quilt, I used a dark blue woven fabric to give the quilt a little more weight. The binding was done in a vintage pink brushed cotton.
Have you ever made anything for your mom (grade school projects don’t count)? How did it turn out?
