I realized that I never showed you the quilt I made for my sister (for Christmas) !!
Today IS the day :)
I warn you, these pictures are absolutely terrible. They were taken inside and the sun wasn't shining very bright anymore outside.
Also, for some reason, this quilt is incredibly hard to photograph !
Maybe it's all that red ?
Anyway, she loves it, I only gave it to her a few days late and it looks gorgeous in person so I don't care that much about the pictures (I do, but just a little)
This pattern is called "Storm at Sea" and depending on how you place the fabric, it can look very different!
If it hadn't been for my sister, I would have just let that quilt in a bin forever because I paper pieced the whole thing (measurments are 60"x72"). At the end, it was hell.
Can you imagine removing all that paper ? There are 99 blocks in there and they all have at least 5 pieces so that's over 500 little pieces of paper I had to rip.
Luckily, my boyfriend helped just a little bit :)
For the back, I used two AMH prints that reminds me of my sister and another that
we found in a quilt shop and that she liked a lot.
I was so so so happy to finish it ! And it was worth all the frustration because my sister
is one of my most favorite person in this world :)
And now, everyone I love the most has a quilt made from me : my mom (4!), my sister, my grandparents and my boyfriend.
