This quilt came together very quickly. Not because I needed it for a baby (although I can't seem to make baby quilts fast enough these days), but simply because I saw the quilt online and had to make it. It is a free pattern HERE. I printed it out, pulled some fabric, and a few hours later I had a quilt top. I think I even bought the fabric at Walmart on clearance and I think it made a really sweet quilt.
This is the first quilt I've ever made using only 2 fabrics for the top. That's a new concept for me so it surprised me that I was drawn to this quilt, but I just enjoy making quilts that catch my eye. If I see it and I like it, I want to make it and I'm not worried about why or what kind of quilter that makes me.
Same concept with fabric. Sometimes I fall for an entire line of fabric, but I am just as liable to bring home random fabrics just because I like them.
The pattern suggests you use a large scale print, but I didn't have anything that I thought would work so this pretty cottage floral was chosen:
Jackie quilted this perfect rose pattern across it and I love the way it shows up on the back:
I paired it with this bright pink dot for the backing and this green gingham for the binding:
Who doesn't love a quilt hanging on the line?
It finishes at 40 x 40 and I'll be using this pattern again.
This quilt has an old fashioned vintage feel to me and I love everything about it and I hope the sweet baby girl who receives it will love it just as much.
