All in the Family - Part 2 of 2.

Happy Monday everyone!

Thank you for the kind response I got on last weeks post!  I know the Tula Troops are out in full force, and it's always so fun to see what people do with her beautiful fabrics.  I have more Elizabeth fabric, and I am trying to decide if I can part with it or not, or if I want to keep it for myself (I know I'm being selfish haha).

This week I'd like to share another quilt that went to live with my Aunt K.  This is a quilt top I had already pieced for myself out of long hoarded Joel Dewberry fabric (I feel like fabric hoarding has become a theme of my life).  This top had been awaiting quilting for quite some time, but it had never been on the top of my priority list.

 I loved this quilt, but I knew it would find a good home with my aunt, and quite frankly I have plenty of quilts already.  I had only recently brought home my long-arm machine, so this was a great smaller project to practice on.

This pattern is one of my all time favorites for large prints.  It's a great lap size for the back of a couch, office, or wheelchair quilt.  It is also great as an over-sized baby quilt.  The pattern is "Girls Best Friend" by Mary's Cottage Quilts (found here).

I have made this quilt AT LEAST 6 times, and it always turns out great.  It especially works well if your local shop only gets a few bolts out of a collection.  You can highlight some great large prints, and this quilt goes together SO SO QUICKLY.

I've always loved the Deer Damask from Joel Dewberry.   I was sad to see this fabric go, however I recently saw on Freespirit Fabric's website that he is releasing a new collection soon with new colorways of the Deer print.  I might just have to make another one of these in a new colorway!!!

So what are all of you working on!?  Have you ever made something using this pattern before?  I would love to see what you have created!!!  This pattern is so versatile!
