This is made with my Baubles pattern, available in my Craftsy and Etsy shops, and though it looks curvy and complicated, it uses all straight piecing, and goes together in a snap!
It's hard to tell, but I stippled this one with the perfect shade of Aurifil coral thread (#5002). In person, it adds a fun, unexpected little pop. I kept the stippling a little wider so that the coral thread didn't add too much busy pattern to the prints.
The Baubles pattern only requires 16 fat quarters for a generous lap size quilt, but since the Joel Dewberry Flora collection contains 24 prints, I used all of them and just put the leftovers to good use on the backing. I widened out the backing with a couple of stripes of Kona Navy, which I also used to bind.
Though I am busy with plenty of secret sewing for my book, I'm glad I got a chance to fit this quilt into my schedule!
Alrighty, friends! I'm super excited to share the features from last week's party. There were so many fantastic things linked up! Like this scrappy strip quilt from Susan at Quilt Fabrication. What an amazing use of leftover strips!
Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework linked up this Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt. The blocks are beautifully jumbled up, and it makes the quilt so interesting!
and finally, HeARTs Creations shared this unique red, black, and white finish, called Planetary. Super cool!
Can I just tell you how much fun it is for me to browse all of these amazing quilts, week after week? Particularly when I'm traveling and I can't get to my machine, it is so wonderful to be able to satisfy my need for quilty eye-candy via internet. This is my last post of 2016, and I can't wait to see what 2017 has in store.
You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop" when selecting your thumbnail photo. For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work! :)
