I’m continuing to knock past projects off the WIP/UFO list. This is a little baby quilt that I started last summer. It’s called Blossom and it’s from the book Fat Quarter Style from the Fat Quarter Shop. I modified the pattern just slightly to use some of the leftovers from piecing the blocks. Finished it measures 33″ x 43″.
I just picked it up from Sew Shabby Quilting last weekend so that I could bind and finish. This quilt has so much negative space so I told Melissa that she could just do what she wanted and really play with the quilting. I love the custom quilting that she did and the texture it gives the finished quilt.
For the backing I used a large piece I’d found a while back from the Wish collection by Valori Wells for FreeSpirit. The colors worked perfectly with the front. I didn’t have quite enough so I pieced a panel left over from the butterfly Cotton+Steel fabrics.
When I started this quilt last summer, I’d made a goal to play with color palettes outside my traditional primary colors zone. The gray solid on the front is Kona Ash. The prints are mostly Cotton + Steel plus a few other pieces from my stash. To bind it I used a simple Swiss Dot in navy from Riley Blake.
Always a good feeling to rescue another project from the WIP (works-in-progress)/UFO (un-finished-objects) pile. I think this is the third finish this year! (I need to go back and count…) At the moment this quilt is not spoken for, and I am considering selling it, so if you’re interested, feel free to contact me for details.
Also, a big thanks for all the love and encouragement for this new site in your comments. Also for the feedback – we fixed some bugs that were found. I’m sure they’ll be more. Don’t hesitate to give a head’s up if you spot something. I’m also figuring out how this move affects subscriptions, RSS, etc. Thanks for bearing with me. Any other feedback or suggestions welcome!
