I found so many patterns that would look good, but finally settled on "X-Rated" by Carrie Nelson. The pattern is in her book Schnibbles Times Two. I've made the small version of this quilt before, but have always wanted to do the bigger one! I added rows to this quilt to make it bigger and longer. So I changed the pattern a bit.
They were so pretty all lined up!!
It took awhile to piece, there were lots of rows, but the result was worth it.
And now it is ready to mail to its new home. I quilted it all over with white thread in a swirly loop design. It's a generous twin size, so it'll fit on a bed nicely.
I couldn't take very good pictures of it because it's winter in the Pacific Northwest. Which means gray, rain, wet, cold.... not good lighting!
I have been saving that large piece of pears and apples fabric forever. I think that it's the perfect backing for this quilt! I really enjoyed making this one :)
