It is Week 20 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and I can't believe we have made it this far!!! Just wow!!! Today's quilt top is actually one of the three that inspired the Marathon idea and is called Vintage Windmill and the pattern is by Krista Moser and I just love, love, love it!!!
I mean, stars and rainbows . . . does it get any better than that!!!! For this quilt I used V & Co. Ombre Fairy Dust and I just love how perfectly it worked for this pattern. I cut a strip from the top and bottom of each fat quarter and it made for the perfect bright/light in each star. And of course, putting them in yummy rainbow order just adds to the ombre effect ;)
When it came time to quilt it, I took two favorites and combined them together. Echoed swirls combined with echoed paisleys, and they just are so fun and happy and curvy together. I just love how they dance over the quilt and add such a happy texture. And random note on the picture, sorry it is a little crooked, I got sap on my hands taking the picture above, and was trying to get this last picture without getting sap on the quilt, such is the way things go sometimes ;)
