So there was no Fall Market, but quilts still had to be made and I was super excited to get to do a little secret sewing for my good friends at Moda Fabrics ;) And I was super excited when I saw what quilt I got to make for them!!!! By now, you have most likely seen Camille's and Bonnie's new Sunday Stroll fabric and I already got to play with it!!! How fun is that!!!! Here it is in Camille's new pattern, Stroll. Isn't that just so cute!!!
I had so much fun making this quilt!! I just love sampler quilts, they provide so much variety in the piecing and it is just so fun to watch each of the different blocks come together ;) I will admit, it took a lot longer to cut out, but once it was all cut, the piecing went really fast. And I just can't get over how cute it is when it all comes together ;) I can't even decide on my favorite block. It might be a toss up between the Strawberries and the Hearts . . . but the Little Flowers are so cute, and the Butterfly . . . see, it is just all so wonderful!!!
And when it came time to quilt it, I decided on an all over Curly Q. I just love this design for a sampler, it gives such great texture without taking away attention from each of the blocks. I used 402 Pearl which always blends so nicely, even on the darker red prints ;) And it is also really quick, which was super good as this was one of those super fast turnaround projects. I sure love those, it is just so fun to whip it all together and see it all done :) And it means pizza for dinner, tee hee hee.
And I just love how this dense quilting design makes for some incredible texture. Doesn't that just make you want to snuggle right up in this quilt and take a nap ;) I have to admit, when I took it off the long arm, I thought to myself, how in the world am I going to send this back ;) But I had to do just that, so Barbara stitched down the binding which luckily didn't take to long as she is super fast and the quilt is 65" x 78" so it goes much faster than a king size!!!
And now, it is making it's way to quilt shops all over the US in a traveling trunk show. And I just love it and will look forward to it coming back someday ;) And if you want to make your own Stroll quilt, I noticed that Fat Quarter Shop has a Kit already listed. The fabric won't be available until March of 2021 but you can add your email to be notified when it is available. Or, if you can't wait, (I know I couldn't) you can just grab some of your favorite Bonnie and Camille Fat Quarters. You just need 20 for the pattern and whatever you choose will be super cute!!!
Your work is splendidly, beautiful Melissa. Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
