Ready to play

...that is my 'Girls at Play' quilt which I finished over the weekend. I so enjoyed making this quilt that I felt a little sadness when it was done. Normally I am always happy when a quilt is finished because I am then allowed to start a new one but with this one it was different. And that is also the reason why I am making this one into my first pattern which I hopefully will finalize this week and that then can be downloaded from my blog.

On the other hand it is good that the quilt is now done because I have big plans for a number of new quilts and there is the small matter of the ST quilt project that will need tending to and a commission .... no rest for the wicked.

Here it is in all its glory. I officially declare the block in the top left corner my favorite simply because of the great combination of the soft orange with the deep petrol green.

The back is pieced with some left over fabrics and also some Riley Blake 'Alphabet Soup'.

For the binding I used Momo 'Its a hoot' in a pinkish red that give the white background a much needed frame.

I quilted with Gueterman Sulky 30 w in colour 1072 in straight lines along the seams.

 And here a close up of the 'Alphabet Sour' - they are so cute.

The quilt is 44" x 58 " which makes it grip size and I do hope it will find a loving owner who adores it as much as I do. The listing can be found in my Etsy shop.

  6. Just adorable and so little girlish. Love it.

  7. I've bought the pattern, the fabric for piece A, E and the connector pieces, signed up for a monthly solids club for pieces B and C, let 2013 begin :-)

    I will have a FAB quilt at the end of 2013!!!


Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
