I finished a quilt! It only took me 10 months to get around to hand sewing the binding to the back side of the quilt. I originally posted about this quilt on my old blog here. I now call it "Sheri's quilt" because I decided to give it to my childhood friend, Sheri. We met in first grade and we are now in our 40s! That's a long friendship. I am so excited to ship it off to her! She lives in Idaho and it is cold there so this heavy quilt will be a nice one to snuggle under.
I looked at a brick pattern by Amy Butler and then went with my own sizes. Since I love pillow quilts and had made one before, I wanted to stuff this one, too. I made up my own method of stuffing though. Then I tied each brick in the center.
It's late so I can't take outdoor pictures - maybe tomorrow. Here's Sheri's quilt all bunched up in a chair.
I sure do love the colors of these fabrics. I think the black scattered throughout gives it a nice touch.
The back is a fun fabric I found at JoAnns.
I thought this quilt needed a soft, soothing back.
