    Quatrefoil Quilt Finished!

    I made this Quatrefoil quilt for my Mother-in-law for Christmas using the Sophie line of fabric by Mary Kuval. It's about 5' x 6'. I started out not loving the fabric because I picked it as something that I think my MIL would like and it's not my personal style, but I love the result. I quilted it myself with diagonal lines through the 2.5" squares and center blocks, stippling on the cream, some outlining in the blocks 1/4" in from the seam line, and I tried my first FMQ other than stippling or loops on a finished product. I did a vine with leaves in the border. It came out OK, but since I used red thread to match and the border was busy it was a safe place to stretch my FMQ skills on something other than a practice square. I also used the flange binding technique from a Missouri Star tutorial. I love the result and being able to machine bind the whole thing!

    The colors and the quilt are very pretty. I loved the tutorial by Jenny on the MSQC and hope to use the pattern sometime.

    Perfect combination of pattern and and fabric line. It is truly beautiful and so nicely done. I know your MIL will love it because it is beautiful and because you made it for her.

    It is beautiful! Your MIL will love it and you for making it for her.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    You did a great job! Love the colors, too.
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    such a beautiful fabric collection... they go wonderfully in the pattern you selected. It looks very cozy and welcoming. Did you FMQ on your DM or a longarm? Awesome job!
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
