Finally, a project to share. Remember when this quilt was on my design wall? Well this weekend I finally finished the Soul Blossoms quilt. When I started this project I think I was only moderately excited about it but as I’ve worked on it this quilt has grown on me by leaps and bounds. Now I love it and wish we didn’t have to part.
This quilt was made for the shop where I work partime. We needed something using the fabrics from this Amy Butler collection. The shop didn’t order the whole collection and I threw in a few other prints that with smaller designs just to balance out the bigger ones. The white helps to tone things down a little bit too.
We used the peacock feather print for the back because we have a couple of bolts of this print. If I was keeping it for myself, I may have picked something different.
Now I just need to assemble kits and write a pattern. I’ve actually used this design before, but with a totally different look. It’s a very basic design, but I love the way it shows off the big, bold prints.
As I mentioned before, I took on this project because the bolts of these fabrics weren’t moving at the shop. I enjoy that challenge – taking something that isn’t selling and using it to create something I like and I hope others will like too. I must get that from my quilting fore-mothers who ‘made it do’ with pieces from the scrap bag. But it’s probably silly comparing pieces from the scrap bag to luscious bolts of Amy Butler prints.
