I did it!

I finished that quilt just in time!  The bulk of it was done (everything but the binding) in four days in my studio, including about 12 hours of quilting alone, and I love how it turned out!It’s based on the Ice Pops pattern from Denyse Schmidt’s Quilts. I really don’t like how she uses pattern pieces for everything so I made these log cabin, chain piecing style and then trimmed them all a little wonky.  The fabric is Indie by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics purchased from Stash Modern Fabric and FreeSpirit solids in Spark Gold, Grey, and Arctic White from The Little General.

I quilted it in a khaki colored thread with a loops and leaves pattern and bound it in mustard, with a little bit of print.

Amanda received the quilt for her birthday on Sunday and I got a string of enthusiastic text messages of thanks afterwards :)  Sam, her husband who commissioned me to make the quilt for her, kindly took some photographs for me.She asked how I could make it with fabric that was so perfect for her, which is a big compliment.  All Sam had told me was that her favorite color was yellow (which I took to mean mustard, since that’s the yellow I love) and went with it.  I’m so glad she likes it!

    1. Thanks so much, Lindsay! It’s nice to be reminded what it’s like to quilt on my little machine and appreciate how wonderful your services are! :)

  1. So beautiful, and even more so in person! The loops and leaves pattern is gorgeous. You did a great job.

  2. Kait,
    I was absolutely floored when I saw my quilt, and I’ve been in awe of it everyday since. This is one of the most wonderful, most personal gifts I’ve ever received, and I’m so excited to enjoy it over my lifetime and pass it on to my kids! Thanks for your amazingly beautiful (and impressively speedy!) work. I’ve been showing it off to everyone!

    You are the best,
    Amanda
