Mom's First Turning Twenty: A Custom Finish
I have mentioned before that my mom teaches the granddaughters (and grandsons who ask) to quilt when they turn 13. She uses the basic Turning Twenty pattern. She decided that she wanted to use two of the kits we purchased last year and make matching quilts for the grandchildren's room at her house. This is the first one she had me quilt for her.
I quilted it with the Cherish design from Christina Cameli's second book.
It is a fun design to fill up a space with using a swirl and three arcs. Sometimes you echo the shape to move to another area.
She had me do the binding by machine for her so it could be finished quickly.
Her second quilt will have the same twenty fat quarters with a different border, binding, and backing. I always love working on projects with my mom.
