It's always a fun day when I get to share some secret sewing!! I was thrilled when my good friends at Moda Fabrics asked if I would make the Hometown Quilt by Camille Roskelley featuring her new Dwell Fabrics!!! And of course, I said yes, I mean, how can you not whip up those adorable tulips and houses, so cute!!!!
I love making Thimble Blossom patterns, they are always so well written, easy to follow, and just fun piecing! And I truly did have so much fun making up this Hometown Quilt !!! My favorite was the tulips, just so sweet. And I love the print Camille chose for the border, it just frames up that navy dot background perfectly.
And I had so much fun custom quilting this one!!! I quilted all over curly q's in the background. Then on the houses I did scallops on the roof, arches in the windows, and straight lines in the door. I just love the way it all came together, don't they just look so cozy!!!
And now this quilt is off visiting lots of quilt shops in a whole bunch of hometowns :) So I will have to wait to snuggle up in it, But you don't have to wait!!! Dwell Fabrics are shipping now and Fat Quarter Shop has a Hometown Quilt Kit already available !! So you can whip up your own Hometown Quilt before the end of the year, so great!!!
