Finishing a project is always so gratifying,  BUT completing a project that has been in the works for three years and is being given as a gift, is even more gratifying.  For my family Christmas we draw names.  I selected my sister-in-law Kelly.  I immediately thought of this quilt.  It would match their red couches and wood floors perfectly.  

The quilt top uses the pattern Simply-a-Bloom from the Moda website.  I did change the border width and chose not to add the flower appliques.  The fabric is a layer cake, named Simply Abundance, is by Bonnie & Camille.  For quilting, I chose a simple stippling. While quilting, I added the name of each member of the family.  It turned into a fun ispy game as they are pretty tricky to find!  The back is a chocolate brown minky fabric.  Oh, I love that stuff!  It makes the quilt so warm and comfy.  

The best part, I believe they appreciated and love the quilt -- always a bonus when you give a homemade gift!
