Overs and Unders

It was actually too sunny yesterday when I was trying to photograph this quilt top!

This is called Overs and Unders, and was inspired by this beauty.

My mum's 70th is the first weekend in November so this will be for her.  I made dad a Civil War quilt for his 70th so I couldn't not make mum a quilt too!

I really love Fig Tree Quilts fabrics at the moment, and their nod to vintage patterns and prints.  I used an Avalon Jelly Roll for this one.

I have plans to add a bit of applique to those star centres, but first I need to crack on with the quilting if I'm going to get this finished in time for the birthday girl!
