She wanted a twin-sized quilt for her guest room in blacks and creams.
Not black and white, mind you. Black and CREAM. Do you know how hard it is to find fabric that's black and cream (or off-white or beige or any other neutral, non-white color)? Let me tell you, then. It's not easy. I finally managed to find several prints I liked and that looked good together. That's when I started getting excited about this quilt.
I settled on a pattern very similar to the one I used for Alyssa's quilt. I like this pattern not just because it's simple, but also because it's very forgiving. Since I'm still a beginner, many of my seams didn't match up, but that's okay with this pattern.
I used black muslin for the backing and made trim with the left-over pieces of my 4 light-colored fabrics. I am just thrilled with how it turned out!
My friend Sandy quilted it and finished it for me. Didn't she do a FABULOUS job?!
I have been wanting to post this for weeks, but I had to wait until after Christmas. My mother doesn't usually read my blog, but just in case she did read it, I didn't want to spoil the surprise.
