Wonderful Seattle Weather and quilting!

Seattle and the Pacific Northwest are beautiful with sunny skies and super warm days! The mountain has been “out” in all her glory !!!

My daughter-in-law’s mother was moving (it’s been a busy few months for our family!) so I made this throw for her as a house warming gift.

This fabric was in my stash and in one of the first boxes I unpacked. There was a center panel and eight coordinating fat quarters, plus about a 1/2 yard in an ninth print.

The first border,¬†sometimes called a “piano” border, was created from the eight prints.

These strips were sewn together, cut into the width I wanted and stitched together for the lengths needed (sides and top/bottom).

I did not have enough fabric for the outside border to go all the way around. Luckily, there was enough of the border strips to make corner squares. Quilting was a simple stitch-in-the-ditch around the center panel and piano border.

I chose a beige backing which was rolled to the front to bind the edges. She really liked the final result!
