The last quilt I made, my mom just loved. So, I figured that I would make her one for her birthday. (October 5th). Since I had this idea back in like, July, I figured that I'd have plenty of time. We all know how that goes. I kept putting it off and putting it off, and I've only just finished, and it's almost the second of October. My mom's favorite color is brown, and let me tell you, it gets really old looking at different shades of brown material. I finally just said enough, and the material I had up to that point was what I was making the quilt with. Turns out, it takes up almost the entire top of my king size bed, with about 16 inches hanging off the bottom.
As I was laying the pieces into groups for the blocks, I was thinking, "Oh, what have I done? This is going to be the ugliest quilt ever."
But it turned out surprisingly nice. I actually like it. And I would like to point out that this is the first quilt I've made that didn't have a ton of folds or gathers on the backing fabric, from shifting while I was quilting. This time around, I washed my backing fabric, ironed it, and used twice as many pins as I have on previous quilts. Something worked out right, because it's completely wrinkle-free! Hopefully my mom likes it.
