Lucia's Scrap Quilt - A Finish!


This week I was able to finish up Lucia’s quilt.  It’s now in its new home on her bed.  I used several pieces of flannel for the back so that it will be nice and warm for her to sleep under.  

I’m a little disappointed with myself on the quilting front.  I think it would have been the perfect opportunity to work on my free motion quilting and play with flowers.  It has so much going on that I think it could have withstood imperfections.  Instead I went with simple vertical lines.  It works, and I have no compaints with it other than the lost opportunity to try something new.



Overall I’m very happy with the quilt.  It used up tons of scraps and it feels joyful.  Lucia likes the big butterflies in the center.  I made them several years ago as part of a class that played with log cabins.  I really like them too and I had her in mind when I created them, so I’m glad they found their way home.

What a lovely bright and colourful quilt. I am just learning FMQ and finished my first efforts this week. It's scary but as I don't sell or exhibit my quilts I've nothing to loose. Thank you for sharing.
