This fabric is "Fiona" by Anna Griffith, and I found it at the cutest little shop in Battle Creek called Sew Unique Threads. They had a couple 5" design rolls on display, and I couldn't pass one up! I had no idea what I was going to do with the fabric, but it was calling to me (I'm sure we all know how that goes). Anyway, it sat in my stash for a long time because I didn't know what to do with 5" strips. Eventually it hit me that if I cut the strips in half (length-wise) that I would essentially have a jelly roll. Eureka!
The pattern I used is "Picnic" from the book Scrap Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett. It was super fun to make, and almost worked like instant gratification. This top waited a long time to get finished due to a lot life changes getting in the way. Finally I found a shop in Okemos, MI that has amazing quilting prices (Cutom Quilts). They had a long turn around time, but you can't beat the price!
I finally bound this quilt a few weekends ago when I was in Charlevoix, MI. These pictures were taken right outside our family condo downtown, isn't it beautiful! It is truly one of my favorite places on Earth. I am excited because I will be able to make another trip in the very near future!!! :)
Because I was so happy with the quilting, I decided to charge them with the quilting for a very special quilt that will hopefully be revealed soon! :)
