Every year my sisters and I do a secret Santa for gifts. We draw names and have a price limit. For the past year (or more) I have been working on this quilt for a sister. When it came time to draw names, I figured out how to get her name. (I am a sneaky girl!) It was the perfect motivation to get this quilt finished and gifted.
I handed this one off to Julie to quilt for me. It was during finals and I didn’t want either one to suffer in quality. We decided on a simple meander, as to keep the design front and center and blend all the strips together once washed and dried.
This was completely made out of Kona cottons. The pattern is from Carolina Patchworks. The backing is a Star Wars comic book fabric that I found on Etsy a long time ago. She loves both and I figured why not. There are no rules in quilting! At least not in my household.
A few more pictures…
All quilted, ready for binding:
Binding on and sewn down. Washed and dried:
I love how the strips get lost in the quilting and it becomes a large picture from far away and not a patchwork quilt.
It turned out amazing! It took a while to get finished but completely worth the time. I was so excited to give it to her for Christmas. I think she was as happy with it as I was. I hope that it is used often and loved well.
