Cotton and Steele

This quilt was made with leftover scraps of Cotton and Steele that I purchased from the PIQF show in 2017.  The scraps were sewn into strips to make blocks of 10.5 inches.  
 They were then alternated horizontal or vertical.  I think the dimensions were 60 x 70.  The fabrics were very colorful and playful.  Although there were some halloween fabric that had cute skulls and ghosts.
The quilting was done from the back with Aurifil 50 wt thread.  I followed the outline of the flowers with free motion quilting.
This is the Kaffe Fassett fabric that I used for the back.  It makes such a pretty bright back.  This was given to my Aunty Helen on my Moms side, who is 90 years old.  She needed a twin size quilt for her bed. I had given her a queen size quilt earlier, but she said it was too big.  This was given to her daughter Charlene who just recently retired.
