This was the beginning of the second quilt I wanted to offer as a present for a special birthday. This time for a young man whose favorite colors are blue and green. As before I went with a disappearing ninepatch but now aiming for a more contemporary feeling.

As usual a few pics about the making of that started back in March.

Gerry // 3 and last!

See previous two posts if you like to know the whole story.

So this is it, my finished quilt Gerry. Sewed with love to be gifted to my father for a special birthday.

The front.
190 x 150 cm

The back.

And this is the moment of gifting it to my father during our joint vacation in Italy last month. Temperature wise not the best timing but autumn is around the corner, isn't it? 
A precious moment for both of us.

Gerry // 2

See previous post if you like to know the whole story.

I like my quilts to be reversible and am mindful about the backing.

Pin basting is the part of quilt making I really don't enjoy that much.

Quilting on the other side I do enjoy a lot.

And love to come up with own quilting designs for each quilt.

Every moment of quilt making has its own singularity.
Sewing on the binding by machine is one of THOSE moments.

Attaching it to the back by hand ANOTHER one. I love this phase. 

Finally, by end of March I had my finished quilt!

While hand sewing the binding I started on a second quilt to be gifted. But that is another story. Next I'll post some pictures of the finished Gerry.
