I have been driven this week ... driven to complete a quilt rather than start on another quilt top. The "boy" quilt will have to wait whilst I allow the girly girl phase to lapse.
This one is not quite my usual color palette, but the fabrics, prints and colors have all been a delight to work with. It was easy, relaxing and as always fun!
Fabrics:Children at Play by Sarah Jane
Michael Miller - Ta Dot in Minnie
Kerchief Girls in Red (Japanese Import)
Mini Medallions -Flower Sugar by Lecien
For additional solid fabric for the borders I have used a Moda Bella Solid fabric in the colorway White. It perfectly matches the background fabric of the Children at Play collection. The solid fabric used for the back of the quilt is Robert Kaufman Kona cotton in Pearl Pink; the softest and prettiest pink.
For binding fabric I have used a red and white pin stripe. No surprises there!
Oh, and while I was at it ~ in a burst of unbridled energy and enthusiasm ~ I whipped up a matching pillow! I may have got myself a tumbler block bug (and yes, the Accuquilt fabric cutter does make is so easy to cut and piece the pieces together).
The back of the pillow features a leftover piece of Children at Play - Parade - the same as used for the large quilt border. (I have used interfacing to give this fabric some stability and extra durability). The pillow cover has a zippered back for easy insert removal and cleaning.
Both the quilt and the pillow are listed in my Etsy Store.
