Gifted



A finish at last! I knew I should be spending some of my quarantine time finishing some of my UFO quilts. I started the year out so great and then you know how it went.  With some recent eye problems my great start to the year of UFO finishing was halted. I had a great opportunity to get a big quilt quilted on a longarm at my local Bernina shop so I jumped at it. 

One weekend I found this quilt top in my UFO stack and thought it would make a great graduation gift. I only had to find enough fabric to make a back as I have not been buying anything and trying to use up my stash. After much searching I was able to find enough pieces that worked well with these great colors. Lots of orange, coral, red, and pinks...so lovely together. 
This quilt pattern is by Alyce from Blossom Heart Quilts called Double Dash. I tested this quilt for her last year and got the top done from black and white prints and many scrap solids from my stash. 

It measures 90" x 90" ish so my pieces had to be fairly big. I was able to mix the pieces I found and come up with a back and made a small space at the bottom so I could add a special label when it was done being quilted. 
Quilting design is the square in a square repeat and Bailey did a great job on it. 

The Label I printed out with a picture of the recipient, my great niece. When I was looking for backing fabrics I found an old quilt block my mom made and decided to add it to the label as a fun memento and for her to know her great grandma will be with her always.

This color theme is one of my favorites. I just love how they all go together so well with all the black and white. 


So happy that this big one is off my pile, completed, sent and received in time to head off to college next week.  So happy.....

Congrats on the finish. It looks amazing.
What a wonderful gift for your special graduate. The inclusion of her great grandmother's quilt block was the icing on the cake!!
