The Christmas of Quilts...part two
For my husband's mom & sister I made Mother-Daughter quilts. They didn't match but I based them around the same fabrics. Each was built around a Moda Fig & Plum charm pack.
I finished my mother-in-law's quilt a couple months back and then had to sit on it silently (keeping surprises is not my long suit...it nearly killed me...here is the quilt folded in a past post). Her quilt looks a little more traditional to me, more of a patchwork design with cascading strips of Kona solids between the columns. The back is just one solid piece of the olive green polka dot print in the charm pack.
Admittedly, I did not get a great picture, but hopefully you get the idea.
My sister-in-law's quilt will be up next... :)
