I bought a jelly roll of the line and then it sat and sat. I was going to make him a quilt for his birthday in August last year but after making one for my father-in-law (A Zipper in Time) who had his 60th birthday two days before my dad's, I ran out of time. Then I wanted to make him the quilt for Christmas but got crazy busy with work and with being very pregnant and trying to finish quilts for twins.
So it was top priority in 2014 to get my dad's quilt done. I will give it to him for his birthday this August and I can rest easy knowing it is DONE.
It is lap sized for my dad's daily naps and it uses a pattern from Moda Bake Shop.
Here is Tranquility, named for my dad's landscaping company.
|Front of quilt. Uses one jelly roll of Architextures and 2m of Kona White.|
|This pattern really works with a whole line of fabric since all the squares then have character.|
|The binding is the Crosshatch in Tangerine.|
|The backing uses some of the leftover 2.5" strips and a whole lot of the blue circle pattern.|
I hope my dad loves it!
