I had a fat quarter bundle of "Oh Clementine" fabric, from Allison Harris's collection.
I really wanted to show off the sweet prints, so this pattern is perfect - "Sweet Life" from Thimble Blossoms book, "Simply Retro".
Instead of just looking at my precious bundle of fabrics, I decided it would be better to actually make
something out of them.
I asked my sweet friend, Andrea, of Andrea Quilts, to piece it for me.
She always does a beautiful job at piecing - it's such a treat to get my quilt tops back from her.
Thank you, my friend.
She has a darling blog...
...you can read about her process here.
It's a large bed size - 97" x 97".....so I added a cute center strip on the backing.
I swirled the blocks, looped the background areas and feathered the sashing and borders.
It's finally getting warm enough here in Montana to take my quilts outside for a little photo shoot.
Another close up of one of my favorite fabrics...
I had a diagonal stripe fabric of yellow and white for the backing and binding.
We still have snow in the mountains - so pretty.
My favorite block - I love daisies.
