Peggy's Quilt #12 - Cottage Romance

This is a story of loving a fabulous fabric line (Larkspur by 3 Sisters for Moda) and loving a pattern (Cottage Romance in Better Homes & Gardens "Scrappy Quilts" pages 38-41) but not really loving the two put together. I think the problem is that the beautiful fabric was not highlighted enough by the blocky simplistic pattern. However, I do like the feel of the quilt - the fabric is smooth and lovely and drapes beautifully on my bed. I used a 90/10% silk/poly batting which probably helps with the drape, and found extra-wide backing from the fabric line (Feather Garden Bloom in the Larkspur collection). I cut the fabric and set up the pieces for each block before going to a quilting retreat in April 2016. Cutting took 3 days and piecing the quilt together took 2 days (very simplistic). The long-arm free-motion quilting was done by Lyn Durbin of Camlyn Quilts in June 2016. I also made 4 pillowcases to match the quilt, using the four paisley prints in the fabric collection for the cuffs. Regardless of this not being my favorite quilt, I do like how it will brighten up my bedroom during the winter. I love quilting! Peggy 091116
