I had a really productive week last week which set me up for finishing up my Old School BOM quilt over the weekend. I’m really amazed that it’s January 3rd and I’m sharing my first quilt finish for the year!
I really like how all the Carolyn Friedlander prints work together in the blocks, and I opted to go for a scrappy binding to finish it off as well.
I used Kona Cotton in Basil for the backing. Because Carolyn’s prints are also Robert Kaufman fabrics, I thought the matching manufacturer was a good idea. As you can see more clearly in this photo, I opted for an all over free motion meander or stipple for the quilting. I used 50wt Aurifil 2600 (Dove) for both the top and bobbin, and the color does a great job of blending into the prints on the front of the quilt.
The quilt finished at ~51″ wide by 71″ tall, but I haven’t washed it yet. I’m really pleased to be able to wrap up a year long block of the month project in such a timely way. I’ll be linking up my finish with Kim from Persimon Dreams, who is hosting a big link up for all the Old School BOM quilts.
I hope your 2022 is off to a great start!
