Blue for the Bride to Be Quilt

IMG_5309 2I made this quilt for my daughter’s bridal shower gift a few month ago. She’s getting married at the end of September and I have another surprise for her so I thought I should share this one before I have more quilts than updated posts!

We had a delightful gathering of family and friends on the  picnic grounds of the Marin Cheese factory here in Northern California. I surprised my daughter with a quilt I learned to make by watching Angela Walters on the Midnight Quilt Show. I love her playful and carefree style of quilting and teaching and I never miss an episode. Here’s the youtube title if you are curious!

Scrappy On Point Triangle Quilt (an FMQ Love Story) | Midnight Quilt Show with Angela Walters

This quilt is made by sewing strip sets together. I used a couple of jelly rolls with shades of blue, and a jelly roll of white. It was challenging to cut the triangles uniformly, so thank goodness there were extra triangles to use as replacements for any imperfect ones.

I used the left over strips to make a border

I free-motion quilted it using a variegated blue thread. I stitched straight line designs in the blue sections and a floral design in the white. I imagined that the blue was the flowerpot and the white was the flower.

I used my new ruler to make straight lines  and curves

My daughter was surprised and delighted with her quilt.
