Playful Posies & a Giveaway!!!

I am so excited to share this new quilt today!!  I finished this quilt a few months ago and it has been so hard to keep a secret because I absolutely fell in love with it.  So lets not wait a minute more.   Here she is and I call her Playful Posies :)


Playful Posies is being featured in Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts Spring 2015 edition.   It is now available wherever quilting magazines are sold ;)  This is my first time working with Fons and Porter and it was fabulous!!  Everyone was so nice and super easy to work with :)


I used Emmy Grace by Bari J for Art Gallery Fabrics for this quilt.  This fabric is one of the big reasons that I so love this quilt.   I can't get over how much I love this fabric line!!!  (I just might be hoarding some of it :)  I just love the colors and the playful prints, they so added to the feel I wanted to create with this quilt.


The quilt is made up of 9 Posie blocks that are offset with sashing.  The blocks go together quick and the quilt finishes at 58" x 58", a great big baby size ;)  I had so much fun making this quilt and when it came time to quilt it, I decided to really have some fun with it.


In the center of each block I quilted pebbling in the background and little feather medallions in the pinwheels.  This was my first time quilting those little guys and I am pretty happy with how they turned out.  It took a bit to figure out filling up the whole triangle evenly, but I got a little better with each one ;)


Then in the Petals of the block, I quilted double arches.   I have done a lot of single arches in squares but never double arches and not in triangles.  And oh my goodness, these were so much fun!!!  I really love how it makes each corner look like a complete petal ;)


And in the background, I went with my newly favorite feathered swirl.   I just love this design!!  For one it is super fun to quilt because it just flows, and for 2 it looks so pretty when it is done!!!


And of course, I used my favorite 402 Pearl So Fine Thread for all the quilting.  I love that So Fine Thread adds so much wonderful texture to the quilt while still blending away beautifully so it adds to the quilt design without overpowering it ;)  I am pretty sure  Pearl has become my all time favorite color to quilt with on white backgrounds and then it still blends away so nicely on the color prints so you don't have to change threads.  Yup, gotta love those neutral colors!!  (and it just so happens that So Fine is on sale right now, yippee!! Time for me to stock up :)  


And that is Playful Posies ;)   I hope you like it as much as I do.  If you make your own version of Playful Posies I would love to see it.  You can add it to my Flickr Group here or email me a picture of your quilt at happquiltingmelissa@gmail.com :)


And Yup . . . I mentioned Giveaway in the title of this post . . . Lets get to that ;)

So by now, you probably that I absolutely love So Fine Threads!!  They really are my "Go To" thread on the Long Arm and are fabulous for quilting on your home machine as well.   I am actually doing a large spiral on the home machine right now and am loving how So Fine is blending away and it glides through my home machine with the same ease as the long arm :)  It also is nice that I am a mere 35 minutes away from the Superior Threads warehouse and can go walk up and down the isles of color goodness for an hours ;)

So at my last visit, I chatted with my friends there and we cooked up a fun little giveaway for you!!!  You know how I was talking about those awesome neutrals . . . Where here are some of Angela Walters favorites ;)  This is the So Fine #50 Angela Walters Collection #1 and two (or 4) lucky winners will be winning 3,300 yards of So Fine Thread goodness!!!

  14. Favorite color depends on the season, but I have tons of daisies in my flower garden and I love it when they are all blooming. So pretty. Clipping the deadheads isn't as much fun but you have to have some labor for beauty. Thanks.

  25. What a beautiful quilt! My favorite flowers are actually the wildflower collections that grow in my home state (in Maine). The combination of all different colors really speaks to me. Your quilt actually reminds me of them! That said, my favorite color combo is neutral grays.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love all flowers, but my favorite is the sunflower, something about those wonderful yellow petals always makes me smile.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I really love your Playful Posies quilt! It is going down on my list of quilts I want to make :) One of my favorite flowers is the hydrangea. You usually see pink ones and it totally intrigued me as a child that the same plant could produce blue flowers. So, my favorite flower is the blue hydrangea because it was a total score if I got to see one as a child. And guess what? I moved to Washington State from Texas and in the front of my new house are hydrangeas, and they're blue! I just love them. I hope I win some Superior Thread! Magistra13 at yahoo dot com

    ReplyDelete
  31. I visited the Superior Threads store and it was really full of good stuff. They have a lot of Educational articles about thread and sewing with the more complex machines. They had some tutorials and, surprising to me, they even have fabric! I liked them on facebook but I have no idea where I was supposed to put my email address. I tried putting it on the "contact me" section, but I know that's probably wrong. Oh well. Thanks for the giveaway! Magistra13 at yahoo dot com

    Sweet quilt--you just completely changed my plans for the baby quilt I was about to start. And I totally agree with you about Emmy Grace. Isn't that the perfect fabric line?

  130. Hard to choose one favorite flower just like choosing only one fabric. Is that even possible? Forsythia - I'm choosing this as I remember how beautiful this was when it began blossoming in the spring when I lived outside of Buffalo. But what about crocus or lilacs or tulips - it's hopeless. Thanks for asking.

    My favorite flower is the Blue Iris, which I still wonder why it's called Blue when it's such a pretty purple in my opinion. I suppose it's probably a deep blue-violet so that's why maybe. LOL
