Ted's Birthday Quilt
This one was hard to give a name, so I just went with a simple
I hadn't given my youngest brother a quilt yet, so a birthday seemed like a good reason! We don't exchange gifts normally, so it should be a good surprise.
The pattern is "The Mall" from "Strip Smart
Quilts 2" by Kathy Brown. I made 2 small changes. First I increased the border from 5" to 6.5" and secondly I made a solid black inner border, only 3/4" instead of the 2" scrappy one in the pattern. I love the framing effect of the thin black inner border.
For the quilting, first I did a bit of stitching in the ditch, then some hand-quilting in the inner area. The border I did with some free motion loopy meandering.
