Throwback Thursday

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!

    I love this simple quilt! I’ve been sitting here, in front of an enlarged version of the photo, trying to figure out the basic block or unit you used to make it. It looks like squares and rectangles, but I’m having trouble seeing the pattern.
