I often claim to have a Quilting "Hobby" in attempts to hide my obsession with fabric and color.

Becca's Quilt

I decided that in the spirit of the Holiday's, and the end of the year quickly approaching, it was a good incentive to get some more WIP's knocked off the list.

Some time back, I mentioned that I am the lucky recipient to my mother's "cast offs". I get all her scraps and oops fabrics. After making a deliciously gorgeous stained glass quilt in batiks, she gave me all her drops. They sat in my draw teasing me, and just begging for a quilt of their own. I found a lovely little pattern in one of my strip books and thought, well, that will work. So with a little tweaking, poof! A quilt for Becca was born. And since I decided to hand quilt the silly thing, it got bumped to  the bottom of the to do list.

 But now it is in her room, or on the living room floor, or the roof of the latest couch fort. The quillting is a concentric circles pattern that helps to make the blocks almost look warbled.

 Made with multiple batik scraps, hand quilted with a high volume cotton thread, backed in snuggley flannel, and bound with my left overs from other quilts, it's perfect for a 6yo! And it only took a year and multiple other projects to finish it.....sigh.
