I started this quilt when we were in quarantine. I purchased the 5 yard every day quilt pattern from Doodle Time Designs on Etsy. I wanted to match the beautiful mini quilt that quaggy (She was a staple over at C-ster, and hope she finds her way back home to us. I believe she joined, so hopefully she’ll be around again some day) so I looked for somewhat matching colors. My husband prefers nature colors, and our bedroom has a pretty Alaska feel (reminds me of home!).
I really liked how this looked as the 5 yard project, but it was much too small for my bed, so I bought more fabric, and repeated the pattern about 3 more times.
I had my LQS make a really special quilt pattern of moose, bears, and trees. It doesn’t really show up well in photos, though:
I choose backing fabric that could represent the Northern Lights.
There was a slight quilting hiccup where I noticed a mistake (it’s ok.) and I also noticed where I made some piecing mistakes, but no worries.
I’ve only made a few quilts in my life so far, but this one is special because this is for me!
I have enough fabric to make matching pillowcases…whatever I decide matching will look like!
