Hopefully our mommy isn't reading today's feature...because we owe her a quilt big time! I love this String Quilt by Tong made for her mom! I love how she used all polka dots!! Tong (who is getting married in a few months!!) from Ting Tong and Things, is a fun read, lots of modern quilting and she makes some AMAZING bee blocks. This one and this one are a couple of my favorites!
Finally, the big finish! my polka dot string quilt for my mom! i absolutely loved how this quilt has turned out! i ended up doing straight line quilting down the long side of the quilt with the quilting lines close together. i chose a solid binding in kona buttercup. the finished quilt is 64 inches by 72 inches.
for the back of the quilt i used some left over scraps from the quilt top and did a few confetti style blocks framed in the same kona buttercup used for the binding.
and for the first time ever, i tried embroidery and made a quilt label for the first time too.
my mom was so thrilled when i gave her the quilt, she had been waiting for it to be finished since i started it in the summer with the help from the lovely ladies in the great white north bee. this has definitely been my favourite quilt, i hope it can keep my mom warm and cozy for years and years to come!
