Bliss "Wild Thing" Quilt - finished!

I'm so happy to have one more present checked off the to-do list today!
Here are lots of pictures of this quilt that's going to my Grandma later on this month.



I tried some more loopy quilting in the border areas! It's really fun to do and once you get the hang of it, it's really easy.



And, the backing is a soft flannel in one of the Bliss fabric designs. I know it will keep her warm and loved throughout the winter!

quilt stats:
size: 56" x 63"
pattern: Wild Thing by Camille Roskelley
fabric: Bliss for Moda by Bonnie & Camille, Kona in snow
pieced, quilted and bound by Jessica

How are you doing on any any gifts you're making?
I don't think I'm up for sewing many more gifts, but we'll see! I am pleased to have finished this one so early.

Beautiful! I finished a Bliss quilt for my mom recently but can't get a good photo of it. And my next quilt definitely has a date to be backed with that yummy flannel! Bliss looks great in the pattern you chose and I love your binding choice too!

Nice quilt candy goodness!
I had fun making Wild Thing too. Love Bliss.
I say it is NOT Christmas if I am NOT sewing Christmas Eve... I do it to myself every year.

Beautiful quilt and love your quilting. Your grandmother will adore it!

It sure is 'blissfully' crinkly. (pretty bad huh?). The quilt is just gorgeous. It looks super snuggly.

Carla said...

The fabrics you picked are perfect! They really make this quilt pop.

Every time I think I'm done with my Christmas sewing, it's like another one pops up.

I know the pattern calls for using 5" charms, however your blocks look bigger. Did you use charm sqares? Your quilt is lovely; your grandmom is a lucy lady!!

This turned out so beautifully! I bet it is so warm and cozy with the flannel on the back. Love it, and your grandma will definitely too. :)
