Hello! The summer is winding down and I haven’t yet shared one of my quilt finishes this summer. This is the “Ornamental Quilt” from Angela Pingel’s book “A Quilter’s Mixology.”
My Mom was given a large piece of fabric as a gift and she wanted me to use it as a quilt back. We decided on the Ornamental Quilt because its ornament shapes mimic the shapes on the quilt backing. (Plus, it was on my quilty bucket list!)
I quilted the quilt from the back following the shapes on the backing fabric. It was tricky and I did have to use my seam ripper a few times but in the end I am very happy with how it turned out. It took 75 times pushing the quilt through my Juki to quilt it. (Yes, I counted.) I broke it up over a few days and did the dance of joy when the quilting was finished. 😉
This was a fun quilt to make. I really enjoyed choosing the fabric for the blocks from my stash. The background fabric is Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Espresso. The binding is an orange Michael Miller solid.
