Precious - Songbird Serenade Fabric Tour

 I absolutely adore Poppie Cotton Fabric by my good friends Jina and Lori and so I was super happy to whip up some cuteness for their Songbook Serenade Fabric Tour ;)    And a fabric that was so soft and precious needed an equally precious quilt design . . . so here is Precious and Too Precious!!!! 

 I really do love working with Poppie Cotton's!!!  The fabric is wonderful and the whimsical prints and soft colors in this Songbook Serenade line are just so beautiful!!!   I decided right away to pull the dark teal out to make a binding so that all of the super soft pinks, greens, blues, and yellows will just be soft and pretty on the Country Confetti Basic Background.   

And speaking of that background . . . this is Precious.  It was the original quilt design that I choose to make with these beautiful Songbook Serenade fabrics.   I love a good "chain" quilt, and adding precious little hearts into the chain, well, it's just adorable. This quilt is made up with Charm Packs so it goes together super quick.    I can't get over how soft and pretty this quilt turned out.   But my good friends at Poppie Cotton's were kind enough to send me a Fat Quarter Bundle, and since this quilt only needs Charm Packs, I had quite a lot of fabric left over . . . 

So I decided to whip up a second version of the Precious Quilt, only this time using the prints as a scrappy background.   I absolutely love scrappy quilts, and this was a fun way to play on the "low volume background" with some soft but not quite low volumes.  I paired it with Lead Grunge so the chain would really pop!!   And wouldn't you know, it gives a totally different look.   Soft and pretty turns into fun and adorable, and I just love it :)   So now the Precious quilt is transformed into Too Precious :)  

And I have plans to share free PDF Patterns of both Precious and Too Precious, just as soon as I can get them quilted and bound.  (I have been teaching for the last 3 weeks and I just didn't have time to get to the long arm ;)  So be sure to follow along, I am hoping to have them done by the end of this week or early next week :)  

And that is my Precious and Too Precious quilt tops in beautiful Poppie Cotton's.   I hope you love them both as  much as I do, and maybe have some plans of making your own Precious and Too Precious quilts soon!!!   And if you want to make yours just like mine,  here is where you can find Poppie Cottons in your area.

Thank you so much to Jina and Lori for allowing me to play with these fantastic Poppie Cottons fabrics!!!   And for more  Songbook Serenade  fabric fun, be sure to Hop over to the Poppie Cottons blog  to check out more blogger goodies from this wonderful fabric blog tour :)
