This post was originally written and posted six years ago. I can’t believe it has been that long! I really like this simple quilt. It might be time to revisit this. Enjoy!
This quilt has been finished and gifted and now I can share it. Ever have a quilt where all the pieces just fall into place? That happened with this one. I had a totally different plan for this Parson Gray layer cake, but while perusing blogs one day, I saw something that caught my eye. My finished quilt bears no resemblance to the quilt I saw on the Fat Quarter shop blog, but I love it! Sometimes, it just takes a spark and some play for a good idea to come about.
These first pictures were taken before washing.
The background fabric is Aged Muslin by Marcus and I purchased it at the yard sale of a fellow guild member. Can you believe she sold a 4 1/2 yard piece of this? I also bought the lovely flannel for the back from her.
I used a pantograph called African Samba from Urban Elementz for the quilting. Here are after washing shots. I love how this crinkled up! It is so soft and snuggly!
The binding is also Aged Muslin from Marcus. I purchased that bit when I was in Phoenix last month. This next picture is more representative of the true color of the backing fabric. It is SO soft.
I made this quilt for a friend who is experiencing some health issues. He loved it! I hope it brings much comfort in the days to come.
Have a great day!
