Oh, I just love the way this turned out. I love that the design really lends itself to a vintage feel. The design was inspired by a tatting that I saw once and fell in love with. And this quilt is a monster. Coming in at 106" x 106" it will be perfect for my king size bed :) Can't wait for it to make it's way home and have some options for what decorates my bed :)
The pattern for this quilt can be found in this month's edition of McCall's Quick Quilts. And yes, it really is a quick quilt, even though it is such a large one. This quilt is made entirely of jelly rolls and big blocks, so yup, it really is quick :)
I used Mimi by Chez Moi for Moda Fabrics. I really think the soft tones and beautiful prints really added to the vintage feel that I was going for. Thank you again Moda for providing these beautiful Jelly Rolls for me. And because Moda provided earlier prints for me, you can actually still find Mimi in the stores. Yippee!!!
The quilting was done by an amazing gal here in Cedar City. Her name is Linda Walters. She quilted free motion feathers in the background and then curves on the petals with a flower in the center of each pieced flower. She added so much beauty and texture to the quilt with her amazing quilting. Thanks again Linda!!!
So that's Petal Pop. Ahh, I am just so excited!! Each time I am published it is like the first. I have a little perma grin all day :) I just can't help but smiling. And I am off to JoAnn's this morning where I will find the magazine in the shelf and do a little happy dance most likely. I tell you, it is hard not to run up to the cashier and be all "look, I made this". But I have restrained myself from going that far :)
But why am I going to JoAnn's??? Well, It's my birthday today and I am off to buy myself a new cutting mat. Mine has gorges on several of the cutting line from all the use it has taken. And, since it is my birthday, (like how I just tried to slide that in there) I want to do a little celebrating. So, leave me a comment on what is your favorite type of dessert to have on your birthday (mine is cheesecake) and I will draw 3 winners next Tuesday to send 4 patterns of their choice to :) Yippee!!!
Have a Happy Quilting Weekend.
I am linking up to Amanda's and Sarah's :)
