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!
More quilts, bags and other garments to come in future posts!
