Little Bluebell's LOVE Quilt

Hey all!  Welcome to Quilt Story :)  Today we're featuring Adrianne from Little Bluebell Love quilt.  And it is definitely one to LOVE :)  She's got a great list of finished quilts, it's fabulously listed so you can see the image of each quilt and then she has a link to each time she blogged about it.  Genius. :)  Great little quilting blog so make sure to stop by Little Bluebell.


This is "Love" and it is brought to you by the Beatles, late nights with my sewing machine, chocolate, and a vanilla latte or two.



Love's Story:
I have a long list of "want to do" quilts.

You know how it goes, you see a quilt you love, you're inspired and you add it to your "list".  You can't start it now.  You don't have the fabric you need.  You're in the middle of another project.  You just can't.  Not right now.

This quilt never made my list.  One day it all came together in my head.  The Love fabric, the appliqued circles, the scrappy border and white, lots of white.  I just went for it.  I started cutting, ironing and piecing.  It was liberating!!

Try it.  The very next time you have a quilt idea, just go for it!!

 


Thank you so much for all of your suggestions on the previous "Love" post.  I went with aqua binding and free motion quilting, and I totally changed my mind on the backing fabric.  It was just too busy.  I may use the fabric to make some lounge pants from Amy Butler's book.  An appropriate pairing I think!  : )

A beautiful expression of "quilt love" that came together in Adrianne's head! Such a pleasing, balanced design in the most lovely collection of fabrics. Thanks for sharing.
