Mom's Boot Quilt

Sometimes when I'm working on a project, I have to have just the right amount of inspiration to work on it. Mom gave me this quilt back in October to quilt for her. She didn't have a deadline, so it got put in the closet and I just never got around to quilting it. The other night she was over for supper and I didn't have a project to work on for the evening, so I pulled this one out and loaded it on the frame. I have had the thread for just as long and it was with the quilt, so I didn't have to go looking for it. I quilted loops that reminded me of the rope pattern in the fabric. Last night I finished up the quilting on it, so I can give it to her tonight when I see her.

A close up of the quilting. I used a Maroon/Green/Gold verigated King Tut on top and a light blue Bottom Line in the bobbin. I used a low loft polyester batting, so it poofs a bit more than many of the quilts I've quilted.

The backing was pieced with parts of the front. The quilt is all flannel, so it's going to be nice and warm.

The Bottomline on the back blends in really well, yet you can see the quilting. I'm really happy with my tension.

The fabric is so cool in this quilt, Moneik. I bet your Mom will love that you have it quilted for her.

Love the boots! Thanks so much for your visit earlier - not too many people have even heard of Chamberlain!

We're contemplating a visit to the Black Hills this summer (or next if not this one). Any recommendations of good places to stay? We'd like nice, but not too expensive. :)

Loop de loop was the perfect choice!
