Whew! It’s about time this baby is finished up.
I decided early on that I would make this for our church Pastor. It may also serve as a birthday/going away present since they may be reassigned come Fall. I hate to see them go, they are great people I have grown very fond of.
He has commented how his Grandmother had quilts and this quilt is made up of “Granny Squares” so I thought it would be perfect. I discretely inquired about his color preference and I was not wrong when I assumed he liked earthy and natural colors. Check! I had plenty in my fabric stash.
It came together fast and this was by far the largest quilt I had made to date at that time. I remember piecing it on my dining room table. Then I took it outside to decide on color placement.
After I started basting it to finally quilt it, I decided it would come out much better if I sent it to a professional longarm quilter.
I could not do justice to the totally appropriate Baptist Fan design I wanted it to have. Thank you Logan from Chocolate Dipped Quilts, she did a fantastic job!
I did the machine binding method which was a cinch!
I think it measures about 60″ x 80″ a perfect throw size for two people?
Now I just have to wrap it up so it’s ready for it’s new home.
