A cool girl needs a cool quilt, and this is as cool as it gets for me.
The center circle block is one block from Denyse Schmidt's "Single Girl" quilt that I love oh-so much. It's scrappy with some delicious fussy cutting in there - some birds, Sleeping Beauty, Alice in Wonderland, a sensible pear for a well-balanced quilt. You know, the works.
The background fabric is Essex Linen in Flax. It's fairly delightful, I won't lie. I'll be using this again and again. This linen is a godsend for backgrounds in my opinion. Very snuggly, too.
The quilting was done by my sweet mom in an all-over feather pattern. Very simple and modern, but a fairly dense design which is what I wanted for all the negative space.
There not a ton of piecing in this quilt at all, obviously - just 1 real block! But I think you get a lot of bang for your buck with the flax background. Maybe just me, but I really like the effect.
I was just a hair behind on these Christmas projects, so this quilt got wrapped up with the binding only halfway on. It was finished soon after Christmas was over, though, so no worries, right?
And sis was snuggled up in it before I could finish binding, so I think she liked it!
I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Day! Next post: 2013 goals...
