Fabric Tuesday and a new pattern!

Happy Tuesday my friends!! Hope all is well!  We're enjoying the humidity here in Northern Virginia (not) but we are enjoying the fireflies at night!

Last Christmas Heather and I got a couple of new fabric collections and helped each other design new quilt patterns with each.  We finished them in record time (for us) and had them completely ready for quilt market.  But naturally it took two more months to list the patterns in our shop and share it with you all! :)

I'm happy to share Hello Pretty with you today for Fabric Tuesday!


Such happy and bright colors in Aneela Hoey's line "Hello Petal" by Moda Fabrics.  I love the little children at play and I was sold when I saw the kitty cats all named on the back (including Lucy!).


I love creating a pattern that maybe appears to be more work than it is. I used fat quarters to make this quilt, strip piecing and a lot of repeat blocks to create this finish.  I heart it!


When I finished it didn't seem finished...I stood back and thought it was too busy and on the smaller side.  I am so pleased I added the white borders and patchwork squares, I think it completes it.


Backed it with those sweet kitties of course, and there is the perfect stripe in the line I used for binding.


There you have it!

Your quilt is so pretty! Love your design and fabric choice and colors that makes use of fabric you want to showoff. You had me going saying you were enjoying the humidity. Lots of that happening here in North Carolina too! Makes for great quilting weather doesn't it? Rather spend time inside when it's hot and humid!

I can see how it would have looked too busy, but it's fun looking at all those cute, little prints :) The white and square borders were a great idea, and make a great finishing touch.
