now I can post this one!

I finished this about the end of October but it didn’t get gifted until yesterday so now I can finally post it.

Coming through Fort MacLeod, AB in September we stopped at a marvellous quilt shop: https://www.facebook.com/LittleRedQuiltShack/. As soon as we walked in the door I spotted this quilt made up and on display. I’d been looking for something for a special family member who had this year completed her Master’s degree while holding down a job and caring for her family and making two moves! Luckily the shop had one final kit left so I quickly took it.

All the fabrics in the quilt top are from the Moda botanica collection. The backing is a beautiful soft flannel. I used Hobbs washable wool for the batting. The pattern is Bundle of 10 by Amelie Scott Designs. It’s a super easy pattern and is very fat quarter friendly. I can see using it again for scrappy quilts. After laundering, it measures approximately 60.25″ x 73.5″. I loved working with these colourful and lively fabrics and the quilt was so soft & cuddly after laundering I hated to part with it!

The hand guided quilting was done by me on my Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen using – yes again because I love it – Angela Walters’ swirl hook design. Top thread used was Glide with Superior’s Bottom Line in the bobbin. Another fun project!
