My Simple Authentic Quilt

I finally finished my Authentic quilt!  I have been working on the binding a little bit each day this week while watching Doc Martin.  We *love* Netflix Instant, and Doc Martin is our newest addiction.  For this quilt I wanted something incredibly simple.  I was inspired by this tutorial , and if you are looking to make your first quilt I think it would make a great one to start with. I wanted mine a little bigger though, so I added a little more here and there- where I felt it needed something.

For the back I used Kona Charcoal and added a scrappy off centered middle.  I almost like the back as much as the front, since you can see the quilting a little better.  I just did a simple zig zag.  

I made this quilt for our family room, and I am really enjoying cuddling under it while we still have a bit of chilly weather.  Spring is coming in full force!


  1. Gorgeous! I definitely love the back just as much as the front... It's stunning! Love the look of the zig zag quilting.

  2. I love your design, it works so well for the fabric. I love Authentic, actually all of the sweetwater fabrics are great.

  3. It's beautiful Meg! And yes, the back is just as lovely as the front.

  4. I love your quilt! What a great would be wonderful to use for some great large prints!

    I got your giveaway package with the 3 quilt sewing patterns...thank you so much, they look wonderful and I can't wait to make the Katie Cupcake one! Thanks again! :-)

  5. I am so addicted to Netflix Instant too! I have never heard of that show, I'll look it up. My newest love is Friday Night Lights :]
