I am so excited to have this quilt finished! Staci, from the Confused Quilter, and I worked on it together last year, and I loved every minute of making it. I loved our almost daily emails, and getting to know her, and I miss our chats. Staci finished hers up long ago, but pop in here and be inspired to make one for yourself. Staci's version in gorgeous!
Then click here to start your very own! Amber posted the block tutorial and I was instantly smitten. I loved her colorway and wanted one just like it so here's my version:
It took me a long time to decide on a backing, but this dot from Connecting Threads won out:
Look at these darling dragonflies that Jackie quilted all over:
Aren't they cute? I told her to chose whatever she wanted for the design and I was over the moon when I saw what she had chosen. I'm not a squealer, but when I look at this quilt, I come pretty close. I guess you could call it an internal squeal.
I finished it off with a scrappy binding and will put it on the guest room bed for the summer.
This was such a fun quilt to piece and I am seriously thinking of making another one. Carol, of the Polka Dot Chicken fame, made one in fall colors here . Sigh. And I haven't ruled out a Christmas one yet either.
We're in full spring mode around here and my stitching time is diminishing greatly so this may be the last finished quilt that makes an appearance for a couple of months. I do have a wedding quilt to bind though.
So far I have finished 6 UFOs since the first of the year, and 2 quilts that were new. I really wanted to make a dent early on because I knew I wouldn't be indoors much starting about now.
Staci and I are planning to stitch another quilt together sometime in the coming months, and I'm really looking forward to starting that one!
Yep, this one is definitely going to be a favorite!
