MIL First Quilt

Last night I quilted my MIL's first quilt. It's a pattern called Jungle Fever and she had a kit to make it. It was basically a layer cake of 30 10" squares. All the fabrics are Asian prints which she really loves. The pattern is really simple and she was able to get it done with out many problems. It turned out to be about a throw size 50"x58", so it'll be great to wrap up in this winter and watch TV.

Here's a couple close ups of the quilting. I did a meander all over it.

The block above and the block below are her favorites, because of the way she was able to place the cuts for the blocks. I helped her make one set of blocks and then she made all the others without my help. This was practice for the quilt we plan to make together for her this winter. It's a queen size, so it may take us a while.

This is the backing fabric. It matches a couple of the blocks in the quilt and was on the $5 a yard sale, so we got six yards of it. She has enough to make another quilt backing and pillowcases. She loves this fabric. Hopefully tomorrow night she'll get the binding on and the quilt will be done.
