Iâ€™ve been clearing space in my studio by finishing some lap and throw quilts that have been hanging around awaiting completion.
This one I pieced from my scraps using fabrics in cream, brown, green and red.
Itâ€™s backed with even more scraps in coordinating colors.
My friend created this quilt top and brought it to show and tell saying it was her first modern quilt top. I offered to take it home and quilt it.
With all the purple fabrics, I decided to quilt it with purple thread. I used mostly straight lines but added a bit of free motion stitching to add some love.
I found this red and purple striped fabric for the backing and binding. Iâ€™ve never used prairie points in a quilt before so I was bit befuddled as to how to quilt them. I opted to just quilt around them (no stitching on them). They wrinkle a bit after being washed, but it is a fun tactile piece of the quilt that those little triangles can be moved.
