First of all, I hope everyone had a very happy holiday, and new year! I took some time off from the blog to spend with friends and family, and get some much needed relaxation. Even though it is a snowy winter wonderland outside, I still have quilts finished this fall to share.
This quilt has been waiting a long time to be finished. So long in fact, that since this top was pieced, I have moved 4 times, graduated from college, and worked at 3 different jobs. I finished this top around 6 years ago!!! In fact this was one of the first quilts I shared here on my blog. One of the photos in my blog header features this quilt top shortly after I pieced it.
I absolutely love this quilt. These were leftover strips of older Amy Butler Prints, and so it ended up being a "free quilt", made entirely from leftovers. The pattern is "picnic quilt" found on the Moda Bake Shop.
I'm not sure its that easy to see in the photo, but I quilted this with a swirl/flower design. It almost looks like a paisley, and I really like how the quilting complements the prints in this quilt. This was one of the first I quilted on my new longarm, and it was really fun to try something different.
This quilt is a good lap size, and is perfect for the back of the couch. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this one yet, but I just love it!
Thanks for stopping by everyone!!! Have a great week!
