Meg here. I am beyond excited to share this quilt today!!!!!! Eeeeek!!!
Yes I know it's Fabric Tuesday (and you can scroll through my loads of pictures to link up :) But I'm being selfish this week and sharing my finish.
I could not wait for Briar Rose by Heather Ross to be available. The first night Heather and I ordered enough to make everyone in our family a quilt.
Usually I hoard these fabrics, maybe it's because we got a lot...but I cut into it right away.
I bought a Hexagon ruler at Joann. 5.5" I believe. I cut squares of fabric to that size, placed the ruler on top and trimmed the corners accordingly. I used the awesome tutorial by Kati of from the blue chair.
I like most everything I make, and I love a lot of what I make. I'm stuck up like that. But I LOVE this quilt. Love.
I had this quilted by Logan in Utah at Chocolate Dipped Quilts. A-MAZ-ING. Seriously. I have looked it over and over and it is perfection. Her stitches are unreal!! I have yet to see the tiniest mistake, and I know my piecing wasn't perfection so I'm not sure how she pulled it off.
It has this beautiful floral design that covers 6 hexie's and 1 in the center. She connects each with this beautiful looping.
You can tell I've already been loving this quilt (not because it shows) because I know every square inch of it. I threw it on my little 4 year old the other day and declared "this is my favorite quilt ever." which he promptly told me it wasn't his, he hated the fabrics and the pink and purple. And yes, he has snuggled in it plenty since then!
I also have to say this the most snuggly quilt. I definitely recommend the rosette minky that I got at Hobby Lobby. On instagram someone asked Logan (who quilted this) if it was hard. She said it was not hard to quilt, just messy! And I've quilted a lot of other types of minky that weren't hard either. So worth it.
You can send your next quilt to Chocolate Dipped Quilts (Logan) too! Heather and I love sending our quilts out, whether we don't have the time or we want it to be extra special or, in my case, my machine doesn't have the capabilities I want sometimes.
Chocolate Dipped Quilts is located in Utah. You can also mail her your quilt. All of the pricing and details are on their site.
