Drift Away is in the September / October issues of Quilt-It . . . today :) This issue is out now and it has so many great projects in it!! I love that Fall to Pieces quilt on the cover!!
I always get excited to see how a magazine photographer decides to picture my quilt. I totally think they hit the mark on this one. Doesn't that just make you want to lay down under a tree with a good book and drift off to sleep ;) The quilt measures 59" x 59" so it is just perfect for a little snooze in the park ;)
Drift Away is made using Angela Walters stunning collection Drift for Art Gallery Fabrics. These fabrics are incredible!! The beautiful tones and gorgeous prints really did make me want to Drift Away while making it, there just so soft and soothing.
When it came time to quilt this I decided on some free motion all over swirls. I love swirls!!! They are so incredibly fun to quilt and I love the overall effect the add to the quilt. I used So Fine #50 in Putty by Superior Threads to quilt this. I loved how well it blended with all of the different colors!!
And, with the bonus of using a solid back, you really get to see all the yummy quilting texture. Isn't that so fun!!! Ah, I just love me some swirls ;)
I hope you like the quilt as much as I do ;) If you make it someday I would love to see it. You can add it to my Flickr group here ;) And now, I might need to go take that nap under the tree . . . all I need to do is pick out a good book :)
Have a Happy Quilting Weekend!!
Linking this finish up to Amanda's and Sarah's :)
