Ainsley’s quilt is finished! I started it last summer at Craft South… And if you watched this video, you saw a little glimpse. I am planning to do a series on my YouTube Channel later this summer so that I can show you how to make this exact twin size quilt, but for now here are some pretty pictures.
This quilt inspired the free quilting series that I did on YouTube. You can find all of those videos here!
I wanted to use solids in a meaningful way and add this rotating flying geese shaped circle in a location that would be appropriate for the bottom of a bunkbed.
I used a lot of fabric designed by Sarah Jane from a few different collections and some solids I picked up from Anna Maria Horner’s line that she had available at Craft South.
I also included a lot of hand stitching to this quilt. That is the main reason why it took me longer than it normally would to finish.
I added various hand stitched details to many of the solids throughout the entire quilt.
I also used one of Anna Maria Horner’s voile fabrics for the back. This was the first time I have ever used voile for the back of a quilt, and I have to say that I love it. It is so soft. It has a luxurious feel to it. Voile is thin and almost sheer but has a very high thread count so it makes it very durable and since it’s a woven you don’t have any stretching issues like you could have with minky or something similar. Here you can see the hand stitching and machine stitching that I did.
Here is how her bed looks when it’s actually made 😉
