Quilting my Niece's First Quilt


This beautiful yellow and gray quilt was pieced by my niece R.  She worked on it with my mother who teaches her granddaughters to quilt once they are teenagers.  My mom has been using the basic Turning Twenty pattern with all her granddaughters.  It was so much fun to help R finish her first quilt.  :D  All she has left to do is the handwork on the binding. 

I quilted the center section with light gray thread in spirals with hooks.  It was so much fun, and only took two hours with Princess. 


I quilted the borders by sketching around the large daisies.  It took nearly two hours to quilt the borders, which is longer than I expected.  But... I love how it turned out. 


She has this fun polka dot on the backing which looks so neat with all the swirls. 


This quilt is twin size measuring about 76 x 92 inches.  It has Hobbs 100% cotton batting in it, and I love how it quilted up. 

XX,
Jasmine

P.S.  I will be linking up with Lorna for Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts.

  7. Oh Jasmine this quilt is perfect teenager quilt! I love that your mom is teaching her granddaughter to quilt....she kept it doable and rewarding for them. You wouldn't know by chance the fabric line used...this is exactly what I'm looking for...but with purples and greys...to make a baby quilt.
