Happy Birthday Quilt

I recently finished a quilt for my Great Aunt.  It was her 90th birthday on September 11th this year.  I felt like sending her something nice, so I made her a quilt.

This one was a lot of fun.  It took me a while to lay out the pattern, but once I figured that out, everything went together nicely.  I kept it as simple as I could.  Each quilt that I do, I always try and do something that I have never done before.  On this quilt, I used my new quilting rulers and ruler foot to create a simple scallop on the border.  I really enjoyed using the rulers and can’t wait to find a project where I can use more of them.  It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Fabric was: My Secret Garden by Cheryl Haynes (42) 10″x10″ pieces.                                                Border:  Yellow Fabric; Essentials by Wilmington Prints.                                                            Backing: Holly Woods by 3 Sisters for Moda (108″ wide backing)                                                          Thread: Gutermann Cream color 800 for piecing                                                                                         Pattern: Half Square Triangles Around the World                                                                                         Quilted: by Machine by stitching in the ditch and did a simple single scalloped border design.
