    My Cuddle Quilt

    This is a quilt that I just finished as a "cuddle" quilt for me. The pattern is "Blueberry Buckle" by Jo Morton. I did increase the blocks from 4 inches to 8 inches so it measures about 65" x 55". The top and backing are done in flannel and the batting is Warm and Plush 6 oz. batting. The quilting was all straight line quilting done on my dm. I had to piece the back to use up fabric from my stash so I decided to use the left over flying geese as well. Since it was my first attempt at planned pieced backing, I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

    I really like the pattern & colors in your quilt. It reminds me of a quilt I made for a wedding gift once. I liked the colors so well I didn't want to give it away but, away it went. Your back is awesome & I like your straight line quilting. Glad you are getting to keep it for yourself.

    Beautiful pattern and workmanship. I love blue and brown (and pink and brown). Your fabric choices are excellent.

    It's a beautiful quilt. Also love the flying geese on the back - makes it reversible. Enjoy it!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Beautiful color palette and I absolutely love your simple straight quilting. Sometimes I try too hard for an overall motif and this is perfect.
