For those of you visiting for the first time welcome! Stay a while :) We are sisters who share writing this blog, design quilt patterns and are fabric nuts! Every week we feature three different quilters and their finished quilts, and we'd love to feature YOU! We also share our own quilts and projects :) You can check out the sidebar on your left for different types of quilt stories or to see our projects.
This is the reason that I go to my Mom's house all the time to craft! Seriously this view looks photoshopped! She lives about 20 minutes away, and she is a super clean freak. Plus she loves to take care of us, feed us, sew for us. We couldn't ask for a better mother or a better location for her to build a gorgeous house!
Fabric: Peacock Lane for Michael Miller Size: 60" x 72"
Last time Megan was out here we sewed and sewed. We created this quilt for our super cute niece who just turned 20! We thought it would be a fabulous quilt for college. She loves it!
We did super soft minky for the backing. Just so nice to snug up in, especially since our darling niece lives in a nice winter town. Our wonderful Aunt did the quilting. The quilt was a total collaborative effort, Megan and I each did half the blocks and our mom pieced the top :) We just looooved some of the prints of Peacock Lane, it is perfect to fussy cut.
The pattern will be available in our shop shortly. Let us know by email or in the comments if you would like a notification when the pattern is available. We will contact you..
Our Mom doesn't like the quilt! She thinks we went a little out of control with the colors, that we should have been so much more unified. I was a little surprised just how open she was about not liking it! She is a little old school about color combination. Bless her heart!
We hope you love it! Thanks for visiting us here at Quilt Story. Again check out how you can be featured, find out more about us, join our weekly linky party and stay a while :)
Megan's got another quilt on Fresh Poppy Design (our other blog) so check it out, here's a sneak peak:
