Sunkissed Sally pretty quilt finish...

This quilt is super eye catching. Very cool pattern. Plus the fabric line is great too! Linda from A maidenhair fern brings us this darling quilt. Linda has some great tutorials like this one and this one. Here are some of her quilt finishes. Cute! 
Sunkissed Sally is finally finished! 


I took a class from Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie Quilt Co, in the spring.  You can read the post about it 
here.  She taught us how to make her pattern "Long Tall Sally".

You can purchase the pattern at the Fat Quarter Shop.



I love this interesting free motion quilting design that keeps the center of the spirals open creating a poochy circle in the middle.  I got the idea from this picture.

Carrie taught us the importance of putting historical information on the label.  You can read more about that HERE.

You just can't go wrong with the Sunkissed line by Sweetwater.

This is really wonderful! The shapes make the quilt look almost like it is moving. This is some of my very favorite fabric ever, and you've used to such good effect. Thank you for showing the close up progress photos. I wouldn't have believed the quilt was so do-able! It looks like it would be so hard. Stunning finish!
