Although I've sewn most my life, I didn't start quilting until a year ago after a friend taught me.
I made this quilt with mostly "stash" fabric but bought 4 additional fabrics to toss in. I never use patterns, and thought of diamonds and squares when starting it.
I decided to stitch in the ditch and instead of backing material, I purchased a 100% cotton sheet. I have grown to like sheets for my backing now.
After it was completed, it appeared to be saying a lot so I called it "Chatter". My sister was the receiver of this beautiful quilt.
I hope it brings her many years of comfort and joy.
