Mum's Quilt

Here is the second quilt front that I ever made! I can see that I have been able to make improvements in this one. You won't be able to see it in the photo but the corners of the squares meet up much better!

The pieced front is Fandango, the borders are both from a craft store.

The Front


A close up of the borders. At first I wasn't sure that the outer border would go with the quilt but I'm glad I chose it now because I love it

 The Backing and binding. Again the backing is flannel. I have some more flannel in my Fat Quarter Shop wishlist as I think it makes lovely, soft and scrummy quilt backings. What could be better on a cold day than being wrapped up in flannel?

This is for my mum, and she will be getting it at Christmas.
