A quilty hug


Just presented this comfort quilt to a friend who recently lost her sister.  A quilty hug.  Her sister loved roses so this piece of fabric with pink roses seemed perfect.  I used the pattern "Zig Zag Zoom" by Mary Ann Altendorf.   A quick and easy pattern to sew up.  I made 12 zig zag blocks and added three borders to make it a nice sized lap quilt.  
58" x 70"


I pieced the back using leftovers from the front combined with Kona Silver.  






I free motion quilted feathers and tea leaves in the main body and did a large meandering and loop-de-loops with hearts in the borders.



I know this little quilt will bring comfort to my friend.  She is not a quiltmaker but she is most definitely a quiltlover  and appreciates all the love and skill that goes into making a quilt. 

Have a quilty day! 😊
