It’s been a while since I made a present for my mum and I’d been mulling over what I could do. I’ve made a couple of lapquilts in the past so this time I decided to make a full-sized single bed quilt instead. I fell for a pattern in “America Makes Fast Quilts, Spring 2012” ( Big Print Bounty by Ellie Brown) but decided to make it scrappy instead in an attempt to use up some of my stash, and actually only had to buy 1m of a soft green for the binding and some of the blocks to tie the other colours together. It was a quick pattern to piece, which was just as well since I’m convinced the thing grew while I was quilting it then shrank afterwards!
Thanks to DH for helping arrange the blocks and with layering it up to quilt, plus DD1 for keeping her little sister occupied while I did battle with the monster! 🙂
