Linking up with Connie at Linky Party Tuesday right here.
I have a quilt finish to show you. (This post is for a quilting friend who looked for me yesterday and there was no new blog...you know who you are!) I call the quilt "Winter Blossoms"...
I started this little quilt quite a while ago with the purchase of some fat quarters and some stash fabric. The pattern is officially called Sweet Little Blossoms, a Pattern Basket design by Margot Languedoc Designs, and designed for use with fat quarters. Once it was pieced, the quilt top sat in a closet for a few months, and recently I unearthed it, shook off the cobwebs (not really....you know how careful we are with our treasures) and sent it to Mary at Quilt Hollow for quilting.
It just arrived back recently, with some stunning quilting by Mary to complete it, or "frost" it, as she says! Here is a picture she provided to me to show the quilting a little better. She is sure a talented lady with that machine. Thank you, Mary, perfect!
I added a striped binding, which I think compliments the border. Both fabrics and most of the fat quarters are from the Wrapped in Paisley line by Moda.
My backing I found in a discount bin and I fell in love with it. The little houses and trees are just adorable, and of course, I wish I had bought more. The color of the backing is a little darker and less pink than it looks in this picture, but according to Thelma at Cupcakes and Daisies, today is National Pink Day, so I guess I'm right on track!
Finally, on went a little label, and now it's a finish! Doesn't it look so soft and cuddly in my cuddle, I mean, quilting chair?
Just a reminder that there are only 7 days left before Madame Samm's Celebrate Red, White, and Blue blog hop starts.
My day is July 1, so make sure you visit me and all the others. Did I mention there are prizes! You can find the schedule and more info at Jane's Fabrics and Quilts blog right here.
And of course the deadline for the Think Christmas Blog Hop from July 30-August 3 is fast approaching. Let me know by Tuesday, June 26 if you are interested. Find out the details here and here and Think Christmas!
It's a great day for quilting and thinking Christmas!
