Today I’m sharing this lovely quilt top made by my Mom. I would like to say I helped…but all I did was hand her a pattern and eat all the chocolate in her house while she made this beautiful quilt.
The pattern is Simple Addition, in the throw size.
The only plan for this quilt was to use “all the florals”, and it is jam packed with all the florals that I would never think to put side by side. The combo of different florals and colors gives it a beautiful, scrappy, vintage feel that I love.
Jane was impatiently waiting for me to take these photos so I didn’t press the quilt top as you can tell…so just pretend all those seams are crisp and flat.
My only after Christmas purchase was a new roll of batting. I ran out of Warm and White and someone posted a that this Pellon batting was a doorbuster here (it’s still on a good sale but not a doorbuster).
I’ve used it a couple of times now and washed a quilt with it twice…and I LOVE it. It is so soft, so dense, and the quality feels so much better! Since it’s a bit thicker it might be a tiny bit trickier to quilt with on my own machine, but I didn’t notice a difference at all…and it was worth it for the feel and the weight.
Anyways, I would highly recommend it (not sponsored I just love it!). They also have a white version that’s a tad bit more, but this one is light enough it doesn’t bother me behind white backgrounds.
I’ll leave you with a picture of Jane (almost 8 months old!) I snapped yesterday. Her smile is contagious!
