    Default The most relaxing quilt ever?

    I've had a brain working in overdrive for a while (work) and decided to pause my 365 block challenge and make something simple yet satisfying. This turned out to be my inspiration:

    I loooooove the process of making these! From the scrap selecting, cutting (really grateful for my strip ruler!) to the sewing and assembling. I admit I've yet to learn to love the quilting but I'm closer. This is the second scrap quilt in this "pattern" and it's for my mum, who (secretly) loves pink and yellow together. The first one was for my dad and I was in such a hurry giving it to him in time for him to go to the hospital for surgery I forgot to take a picture! I made that one in greens and blues and he loved it. In the end he decided to not bring it to the hospital for fear it would be stolen lol. Anyway, this is my mum's quilt:

    I've cut up a whole bunch of scraps to make several more quilts, in a mix of colours. No idea who they will be for, I'm sure I will think of someone! They are all packed away atm since yesterday was my son's birhtday and today the family is coming over to celebrate and my sewing room is transformed back to a dining room for the occation.

    It's beautiful! I know what you mean about the quilting part. I love piecing, could do it all day long. That quilting is hard on this old body!

    I like your quilt. Thanks for sharing the link. I really enjoyed the video. Scrappies are my favorite.
    I am with you about the actual quilting.....it's a pain! I have a small machine and it's a torment trying to wrestle the quilt bulk through it. Sure wish I could afford the local LAer.

    I am in love. I love the colors, I love the design, I love the story. Love Love Love. That is an amazing work. Piecing is my favorite too, although, I get obsessed with getting a quilt finished.
