… from years ago.
8 years ago I made this quilt for my nephew Dragos for his 13 birthday. Tomorrow he is turning 21 and he needs a new quilt. Until Alex’s birth he was the youngest of our nephews and we have always spoiled him- he was the first in the family who had a bed quilt.
This was my 2003-quilting style! At the time I was a big fan of batiks.
The quilt was washed many times, the colors are a little faded but they still look great.
I took these pictures a few days ago and I was surprised to see how good the quilt looks after 8 years of everyday use.
Minimalist stitch-in-the-ditch quilting – one of the very few quilts stitched with the walking foot.
A pieced border – something I don’t make anymore these days…
He needs a modern quilt now – I already planned it – just have to wait to arrive a few fabrics.
I sure loved the fabrics, colors and pattern because I made another quilt, just bigger and without pieced borders.
