I wanted to both recreate the style of quilting I had seen from other photos, and simplify it so that it wouldn’t be too overwhelming for me to quilt (remember, I’m still pretty new to this). One of the great things about this quilt from a learning perspective, is that the repeated design elements gave me plenty of opportunity to see my skills improve and with it the amount of time it took for me to complete a section. I’m proud to report that I cut my quilting time in half when comparing my time at the beginning of the project and towards the end – good thing, or I might still be quilting it!
And the backing fabric was a beautiful blue flannel:
I’m sure this will be a treasured gift for the bride and groom!
