It’s my good friend’s special birthday today and I started making this quilt for her in March. I thought long and hard about what kind of quilt to make her and I chose the pattern Pebble Grove by Tacha Bruecher which I found in one of the Fat Quarterly e-zines. I used 3 Moda 5 inch charm packs and some gorgeous tea-stained fabric for the background and backing.
First block made!
I did some of the work at Potter’s Farm Studio on my Committed to Cloth study days.
Some of the work I did at home.
helped me with the quilt maths, when I was half a yard short on the backing fabric (and it was the end of the bolt!) she gave me a little geometry lesson and explained how I could cut the material I had to fit. The backing was a real patchwork.
Love that new wadding smell!
Quilted with swirls to echo the design on the tea-stained fabric.
All finished, binding on and ready to gift wrap. Out of all the quilts I’ve made this one was one of my husband’s favourites. I like the pattern very much, my friend Amanda is considering making one in Christmas fabrics which I think will be lovely and festive!
A cake was needed too, of course.
Happy birthday to a very special friend!
