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.
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!
