Description

This is the first quilt I have ever made (or ever intend to make). My mother made me a quilt when I was 2, and I’ve cherished that thing until it fell apart (it lasted about 16 years), and I still have it. My son is 2 and is such a little blankie boy that I had to make this quilt as a symbol of my love for him. I love Monet, so I based the color palette off of one of his paintings using Palette Builder. There were just enough problems with making this that I will not do so again for a long time. I do much prefer garment sewing. I constructed the blocks on my Brother CS 6000-i, but the rest of the quilt (border, backing quilting, and decorative stitching) was done on the Viking Sapphire 875 that I got to borrow from work. I still think I’m going to go back and use yarn like my mom had to merge the layers together, but all-in-all, I’m happy with the result. I hope my son cherishes it forever.
