Quilt #18. The kit is from Keepsake Quilting dot com. I made it between August and October, 2019. Finished size is 64X64. The flannel backing was a perfect match and I put in a squishy cotton batt from Hobbs Tuscany. Large meander quilting keeps it soft and cozy. The cat, Princess Tiara, loves a photo shoot. posted 072220
My daughter decided she wanted to giver her good friend a quilt for their wedding ... in 3 weeks! So we went shopping in my stash. She selected on of my favorite layer cakes, "Sunset Blooms 10 Karat Crystals" by Wilmington. I had picked it up as a Daily Deal from MSQ back in June 2018. We were lucky enough to find fabric for the border and backing from the line (which surprised me). Since the wedding was 3 weeks off I decided to go with Jenny's Building Block tutorial. It came together quickly and my favorite local quilter squeezed me in with a darling sunflower quilting pattern. People who say it at the quilt shop asked it if was for sale - I've never sold a quilt so was very flattered. Long story short, I finished sewing on the custom label and binding two days before she had to leave for the wedding. Phew! I love how it turned out. The beautiful, colorful fabric really made this quilt pop.
