Fall Bloggers' Quilt Festival 2011--My Wacky Lap Quilt
Time for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival and I want to share my Wacky Quilt that I made last winter.
This quilt is special to me because my Mom and I had taken a class together for this lap quilt. Mom had her quilted a long time ago and mine sat in a closet. Last winter I decided to get it finished and I was practicing Free Motion Quilting. The quilting wasn't really planned out. I just started quilting.
Please know that I like to doodle in my sketch book a lot so I did have an idea of what I would like to try.
This was a very fun quilt and it reminds me of all the special times that I've had with my Mom.
This is the back of my quilt. I do remember quilting from the center out and having a fit because the borders had ripples, of course, I called Mom. She told me that I had nothing to worry about because the quilting in the center was causing the ripple effect and she was right!
Please put on something comfortable and get a cup of hot chocolate and join us with all the beautiful quilts at the Bloggers' Quilt Festival.
