Floral Quilt

This is my last quilt that I needed to complete for Christmas gifts, whew! Glad to have that done and over. I saw this gorgeous fabric when the fat quarters shop had a sale. I normally don't hoard fabric, at least I try not to but I saw this fabric and bought it with no real plans for it, just knew I wanted to make something with it.

Then the idea came to me I would gift this to my chiropractor. The women has been a saint to me, I couldn't stand going to one and she is gentle and super uber nice. The kind of person you wish you had spent more time with growing up. She is just a fascinating person who happens to sew or she did but hasn't done much of it lately. I am hoping to change that.

Any how instead of gifting her money or a gift card or whatever I thought she would like a quilt. This one is small and considered to be basically a lap quilt perfect for cuddling up with on the couch and a good book which she does a lot of.

I did all the quilting free motion on my machine. It was a chore but I loved how it came out and much better than paying someone $$$ to do it on a fancy schmancy machine.

This is one gift I am very excited to be giving this year.
