When a friend asked me to make a quilt for her family to give as a wedding gift, my mind immediately went to a layer cake in my stash. I had been anxious to sew it up into something beautiful. Neutral, contemporary prints I could see most twenty somethings appreciating. I filtered through quilt patterns until I landed on Jenny Doan’s Illusion Quilt, larger pieces for the focus fabrics and easily adapted to Cotton Theory.
I’m happy with how it turned out and so is the family giving it as a gift. Couldn’t ask for more. Well… hope the bride and groom love it…
My newest feature – TWIST – This Week In Studio Time – a weekly peek inside my studio to see what I’ve been working on, debuts today. This week I finished (waiting for customer to finalize label info to finish label and add black binding) a wedding quilt I was commissioned to make for a friend’s family to give as a gift. The bride approved the printed fabrics, but has no idea about the quilt pattern. I adapted Jenny Doan’s, Shadow Quilt to Cotton Theory. I think she’ll love it. The fabric is Contempo Studios Paintbox Shadows. It’s modern, contemporary, and neutral enough to go with whatever other colors she chooses for her decor now and in the future.
Next Friday may feature a project using my new serger! So excited to get it set up and make it a working part of my studio.
