Wishes in Sophie!!

 So last week I was having a wonderful chat with my good friend Kim, who also owns our local quilt shop, Stitching It Up.   In the course of the conversation, we got to talking about new fabric and how she just had a whole bunch of lines come in and was swamped with how many samples she needed to make.  And of course, I wanted to help her out so I offered to make up a sample for her, I mean, who doesn't want to play with new fabric ;)   And a week later . . . tada . . . a new Queen Size version of my Wishes Pattern in Sophie  ;)  

Can I just say how thrilled I was when I found out Kim needed a quilt in the new Sophie Fabric Line by Brenda Riddle for Moda Fabrics!!!   I just love the soft delicate prints and the colors had me transported back to my childhood of playing with my Strawberry Shortcake dolls.   Aren't they just so great!!!  I just love how it turned out.  

And I am just thrilled with how well my Wishes Pattern showcases Sophie.   They really were a great match.      I especially love the cornerstone stars in the bright red, they just pop!!!  And I also love how they create a secondary chain design around the block, just so fun :)  And the other great thing about Wishes is there are very few seams that need to be lined up, which is great when you are making a queen size quilt in a week.      This queen size version needs 16 Fat Quarters, a pop fabric, and some background to make it and it really goes together fast ;)

And when it came time to quilt it, I wanted to add to that summer flower garden feel so I decided on an al over loose feathers.  I just love how it makes it look like leafy vines are crossing over the entire quilt.   I just love all the motion it adds and how it just flows.   Oh,  And it also has the added benefit of being a quick one to quilt as well, speed was for sure important on this one ;)   So fun!!!  

I am just so happy with how this quilt turned out!!  And it is already hanging in Kim's Shop, so fun!!!  And I am looking forward to when this Wishes Quilt makes it's way home.    Wouldn't this just make the cutest summer wedding gift ;)   

Thanks for popping in today and sharing this new finish with me.   

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!!
