A Framed Bumble : A Finished Quilt
I just love checking off a quilt from my WIP list!
A former co-worker will be retiring this week from working at my first library I ever worked for. So my mom (who also works there) asked me to make a quilt. We chose the fabric together and my mom picked out the Framed pattern from Simply Retro.
I love how stunning this quilt looks. The gray background really works well with Tula Pink's Bumble collection. Gray is really becoming a new go to for background, white is fine, but gray is my favorite right now.
For the quilting I did a combination of FMQ and some straight line with my walking foot. I stitched the sashing to help stabilize the quilt sandwich. Then did some FMQ in the framed squares doing a square in a square pattern.
All ready for gifting. I love having the ability to create a quilt for a retirement gift. I'm sure this quilt will be cherished for years to come.
