A quilt for my big sis . . .

Now that Christmas is over, I can show some of the presents I’ve been working on!  This quilt was my ‘big project’ this year.  We pick names between my parents and siblings, and this is for my ‘twin’ sister (we share a birthday but we’re actually 2 years apart).

The quilt pattern is called New Wave by Oh, Fransson! and the fabric is from the Cloud9 Across the Pond collection with a solid white organic fabric for the sashing.  The backing is an extra-wide solid blue flannel.

I straight-line quilted, and used my foot as a guide on either side of the ditch.  I love this method – more forgiving than in-the-ditch, and I love the way the quilting looks on the back of the quilt.  I forgot to take the finished measurements but it is a very generous lap-size, almost a twin.

And I’m happy to say that with four siblings, I now have only one left to make a quilt for!  I made this one for my brother in 2009 and this one for my little sister in 2010/11.  So now I just have my oldest sister left to make one for – hopefully it will get done in the new year.
