In progress: Lucky Penny quilt for my master bedroom

Written by editor Nicole Bennett of Gidget Goes Home.

You may remember back in December that one of the items that we gave away in our awesome Christmas giveaway was a complete set of the Lucky Penny fabric line, designed by the talented Alison Glass.

At the time, I showed you a few rice owls that I made with the fabric, which came out adorable, if I do say so myself. Well, with the fabric I had left (and a bit more that was bought) I had big plans.

Plans that it helps to have a very talented quilting mom to bring to life.

You see, in almost ten years of marriage (this June!), David and I have used a random assortment of handmedown or repurposed (i.e. designed for a smaller bed) quilts along with our beloved down comforter (or rather, my beloved down comforter, since I”m married to a human heater).

As we approach our tenth year of marriage, and after we recently became homeowners, I decided to coax my mom into making us our very own master bedroom quilt.

Read on to see more shots of my beautiful new quilt in progress.

As soon as I saw the Lucky Penny fabrics, I fell in love. I knew it was exactly what I wanted for my bedroom– a full spectrum of color, varied design, something that somehow reflects our fun life and marriage, yet also feels grown-up and modern.

My mom”s been sending me iPhone snapshots as she goes, asking my opinion on the block layout, the cornerstones (we chose the online casino three above) and other options.

The pattern she”s using is called by Quilt in a Day.  Luckily she has a big tile floor where she can lay out the blocks for such a big quilt (oversized queen).

This was the first view I got of the top– still missing its borders, but with the lattice and cornerstones between the blocks. I told her it was perfect how the pinkest blocks ended up up on my side of the bed. :)

Here”s a close-up of the borders.  She did an assorted mix of squares after a skinny white border, and then a thick one with my favorite fabric. I matched the wall paint color in our bedroom to go with this large border background.

It still has to be quilted and bound but you can get the gist of the finished quilt top here. I just LOVE it. I”ve done a bit of quilting in my time, but I”m in a season where simpler, shorter projects fit into life better (so I opted to outsource). Plus, I love the idea of sleeping under an heirloom made with love by my mom.

My mom”s got mad quilting skills. Thanks, Mom!

  1. It’s so pretty! We have a quilt from Penney’s on our bed, but we bought it 9+ years ago (wow…) so it is getting worn and really does need replacing. I have wanted to make a quilt for ou bed but I haven’t settled on fabric or a pattern yet.

  2. Oh, that is just beautiful!

  3. I have loved making this quilt for you and your hubby!!! (Still need to get the backing fabric before I can quilt it.)

  5. Gorgeous colors! And what a special gift. =)

  6. Quilts aren’t something that I have ever thought of making at home, but this quilt of yours has really inspired me to try my hand at it. I completely agree something that is like a family heirloom and especially, when it was made by your mother, can be a really special thing and if you can cherish it every day then there can be nothing better than that.

  7. VEry interesting and beauty colors. Thank you for sharing.

  8. Wow. Nicely done!
