Hometown Quilt!!!

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 know it looks like a lot of piecing, but it is all piecing on the larger size, and you can chain piece the house blocks and the tulip blocks, so it truly goes together quite fast.  And wouldn't it just make the perfect wedding present or a new homeowner gift!!!  It finishes at 70" x 80" so it is a great size to snuggle up in or have as a throw on a couch.  

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 on the tulips I pulled out all the fun flowy designs.  I did echoed petals on the petals (makes sense :) and loose feathers on the leaves and a wavy line on the stems.  I just love all of the texture this gives the quilt, especially on those petals.  So adorable!!!   I just had a blast quilting this one!!!

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!!!   

I know you are just going to have so much fun making your own ;)   It really is such a fun quilt to make and comes together so easy!!   And then you have such a beautiful finish to show for it!!!!   I am excited for this one to come back because I think it is just going to make such a lovely wedding gift :) 

And that is it for today !!

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