This is one of the softest quilt I have ever made….correction….I have ever finished. Let me explain….
This quilt was a collaborative project between my daughter and I – and not by choice on my part!!!
Approximately 7/8 years ago I taught a beginners quilting class at my church (in Michigan). There were several mother/daughter pairs in attendance. My daughter and I were one of them. This quilt was the top my daughter made during that class. Because she wanted it super thick, and she wanted to “do it herself” tying was the best option at the time. Well, eventually it went into a tote and ultimately on my UFO list!
Well, not anymore! Here it is pre-wash…
Then it got a bath to make it all squishy or squishier as it was already super soft because it is all flannel and super soft already…
While it is tied you can’t see the threads on the front, we put those on the back. We alternated thread colors on the blocks too because the back is a solid off white the two colors and tails give it a bit of interest….
I asked daughter what she was going to do with it now that it is done – she said I don’t know….you finished it, you decide! So, it is awaiting just the right baby!
For now, it is just nice to have all our “ducks in a roll”….
