FO: Calico Garden

On Saturday, I was FINALLY able to get up to Mom’s to do some quilting! I decided to tackle Calico Garden, not only because it was the biggest of the quilts in my pile, but because the recipients birthday is creeping up at the end of the month!

It took all afternoon to quilt it, but I couldn’t be more thrilled with it.

And it’s a big one! The biggest I’ve made so far, coming in at 88″ square. I just love the secondary patterns the big star makes. And there’s such a mix of fabrics, but they all combine so well!

And then of course, there’s that backing! Just look at all those cute forest critters! Luckily, I over-bought on the yardage, so I have lots of this left!

Now, I’ve got to get this packed up and into the mail for the birthday girl!
