WIP Wednesday :: 11/27/13

I sat down at the machine on Saturday afternoon and by Monday evening after work had finished quilting Momm's quilt!  Thinking back it's hard to say what else I did this weekend other than quilt but that's okay - it was sew worth it.  :)
quilted & trimmed for binding

Momm pieced this awesome quilt using the Blitzen fabric line and I agreed to quilt it before Christmas so it can be snuggled.  We planned the quilting out together and I'm super thrilled with how it turned out.  

I used Aurifil threads which I love as they are always so smooth while stitching.  The white bars are stippled with matching thread#2021, the color bars have a ribbon candy type design and in the border I did a fun holly leaf design.  Both use #2320 and the bobbin thread is a light grey to blend into the backing print #2600.

There was just enough red fabric for binding and I'm halfway through hand stitching that down.  I know Momm will love it as much as I do and I can't wait to bring it home for the holidays!

Linking up at Freshly Pieced this week and wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Looks gorgeous and I love your quilting! One of these days I'm going to learn to free-motion quilt :)

  2. What a beautiful job you have done! I have used a bit of the Blitzen in my Sea Stars Quilt gorgeous colours... your mum will love it

  3. Looks like it's turned out great! Those holly leaves in the border are fantastic.
