You may remember this quilt from a few months ago.  It started with a charm pack of School Days by American Jane for Moda, and some yardage from my stash.  I’m happy to say, that it’s now completed, after a LOT of hard work by my wonderful mother-in-law, who hand quilted the entire thing for me between working on her own projects.

I absolutely love how it turned out.  I used yardage of the dot-to-dot pattern from the line for the backing, and because she is amazing, Mary Kay quilted all of the dot-to-dot patterns for me.  Lord knows that I didn’t have the patience and getting something into one of the local quilters takes forever.

This is your chance to tell Mary Kay what an amazing job she did for me on this quilt.  Leave a comment and I’ll be sure that she reads it.

    Not being a quilter, I am sometimes in awe of quilts. This is one of those times. I love the way the colors/shapes work together on the front, and the back with the quilted patterns is just wonderful. Beautiful work, Andrea and Mary Kay!

      O, I still totally think you could quilt. I know our cotton behaves a bit differently than your knits, but I think it’s a lot easier to work with. And this one was actually really simple. You could totally do it.

    Beautiful job, you two! I was in love with the top and all those hst’s and then you showed the back. Love the close up of the dot to dots! You guys rock!

      Thanks so much Lorna! I’m still amazed at the great job Mary Kay did on the quilting.
