I must admit that I just LOVE this quilt.
What started out as a project on a whim, inspired by the beautiful
Liberty Love Book.
These quilts started to appear over on Instagram and I just knew
I had to make one. This quilt took me outside my comfort zone
and I had no idea how it would end up. I was thinking scrappy
but didn't think my scrap containers could pull off what I had in my head.
I started with the two fabrics in the center and just let it grow and evolve.
I think that the addition of this black border was a defining point for this quilt.
It gave me more of a direction that I wanted to head in.
Front and back (with the help of Aiden)
90% of this quilt top has come from my scrap buckets so it seemed
appropriate that the back be pieced from scraps and stash also.
Huge thank you to Linda at Ladybug Quilting for the custom quilting.
I just love how the details show on the black on the back.
(next quilt sent in for custom quilting is having a solid back to show off the quilting more)
I LOVE that I have feathers and pebbles on the same quilt :o)
Our Millrose Bloggie get together is in a few weeks
(all the details are on Shez's blog, right hand tab)
Guess what I'm taking for Show and Tell :)
and when you ask your 15 year old to help,
well you get "googlie eyes" over the top of your quilt :o)
Thanks Aiden :o)
Have a fantastic day,
