Personal Quilt

I don't have a lot of time to work on my own projects much less a large quilt for my own bed. However, this past summer I decided to redecorate the master bedroom and painted the walls using the linen wall hanging as an inspiration for a color scheme. I also reupholstered my grandmothers arm chair and purchased another chair to coordinate. That chair is still waiting for a change of upholstery fabric.

Below is a photo of my new quilt to coordinate with the paint color. I made a simple pieced rail fence out of 2 jelly rolls and added some batik fabrics to make 2 wide borders. It all went together quickly.

The quilting in the body of the quilt is a simple overall, freehand swirl using a variegated thread from YLI.

The inner border was quilted with a piano key design, and the outer border was quilted with freehand feathers.

The room is starting to come together. I need to finish the other chair and quilt the linen piece on the quilt rack. Perhaps I'll be completely finished by next summer!

Looks like things are moving right along. Even though it seems to take forever, sometimes.
Happy Holiday Hugs,
