After I washed and dried it I took it out in the back yard for a photo shoot.
This was the second quilt . I made it to give to her when she left for university, about 7 years ago. At the time I belonged to a batik fat quarters club. I got some orange and purple fabrics one month and asked if she would like a quilt made of these fabrics. She said yes and asked that I make the pattern that came with the fabrics. I believe it was called 10,000 pyramids.
I added green to the mix and bought more fabric and a triangle ruler and set about making the quilt.
I quilted it in the ditch sort of. That had been suggested as the easiest way to quilt but to be honest I think quilting the width of your walking foot away from the ditch is easier and looks better. Here's a close up of the quilting, not quite in the ditch, but not all that noticeable with these fabrics.
The quilt has been well loved and needs a little loving care to restore the binding, so I'll get out the needle and thread before I return the quilt to its' home.
I'm adding my post to the Throwback Thursday linkup hosted by Jenn at a Quarter Inch From the Edge. But I just noticed that Jen's holding the linkup a week later this month so I won't be linking till June 9th. Thanks Jenn for giving us the opportunity to link up these gem's from the past.
