Aunt Bet's Quilt






And one last finish to record for 2019!  I just sewed the last of the binding on this one yesterday. 

The pattern is Aunt Bet's Quilt, by Frankie and Ray.  Truly a lovely and enjoyable pattern to make.  So simple, but works with so many fabrics.  I definitely want to make this one again! 

This is one of those few quilts that I loved my color choices all the way through, and still love the finished quilt today! 

I hand quilted it in fans and used a double gauze on the back and Quilter's Dream Poly batting.  This makes for a dreamy and puffy texture to the finished quilt.

The finished quilt measures approximately 48"x60", which is the perfect size for a smaller lap quilt.

Edited to Add:  Adding this to the Fourth Quarter Finishalong.  Here's my post with the original list of quilts to finish.

  1. Oh my! That is so lovely. I can almost feel how soft this is. Hand quilting was a great idea! Inspires me to try it on a smaller quilt!

  4. I've enjoyed a little flurry of pattern sales this week, so today I thought I'd google search....and here you are! I have to extend my sincere thanks for the link, and for your delightfully kind words! A quilt is always a reflection of it's maker, and your eye for colour means this one is such a beauty. I am in love with the puffy stitchy back as well, it looks so soft and inviting. Thank you again! Jo x

  7. I love your quilt! Looks so soft and cozy. I've been wanting to try double gauze for backing....I'm curious, do you prewash it?
