Little Miss Shabby and another darling quilt!

Corey from Little miss shabby is always making the most darling quilts! I am always blog stalking her! She offers the cutest Birdie stitches embroidery patterns for free on her blog, then a pattern to put the quilt together. And she has several darling quilt patterns she has made for Moda bake shop! Check out her fun tutorials, this is one of my favorites!

Flea Market Fancy & Katie Jump Rope Quilt
I’ve shared peeks of this quilt previously but this is the first time you are seeing it in its entirety.  Of course you all recognize this quilt as the quilt I had intended to donate to Japan Project modern–however, with that project no longer taking place this quilt is currently residing in my family room until I decide where it will end up. =)

Hand Quilting Detail
This quilt is made up of a combo of Flea Market Fancy and Katie Jump Rope fabrics which I think work so well together.  My mom and I did the hand quilting on this quilt using Finca Perle Cotton size 8 in Dark Brown.  The quilt pattern is a slightly revised version of this free pattern.  I preferred the framed squares as opposed to the solid squares and I also made the quilt a bit smaller than the pattern called for.

Back Detail
For the back of the quilt, I opted to use a solid white.  This isn’t something I normally do but I wanted to show off the hand quilting pattern–I think it looks pretty neat (you’ll have to ignore the wrinkles).

I love it!! So so cute! With the Japan project cancelled, maybe a local women's shelter, or certainly somewhere in the Joplin, MO area could use it!

At first glance I didn't think I liked it but the more I studied it, the more it grew on me and now I love it!

Moral: first impressions are not always right!

I really love the angles the squares sit at, as well as the hand quilting. So glad you featured LMS today.
