FO: Purrfect Petals

While I was off last week, I found some time to head up to Mom’s and finish not one, but TWO quilts.

First up is Purrfect Petals

This was going to be a birthday present for Miss Rowan, but I think I’m going to hang on to it until Christmas. I want to make a quilt for her sister too, so this way they can recieve them at the same time.

The pattern is Flower Girl. It’s so easy and has a spectacular result. You can use layer cakes (like I did), or charm packs, or simply cut your own. Corners are snowballed, sashing is added, and voila – a beautiful garden of flowers!

I did splurge a little to get matching fabric for the border, but I found the perfect lime green cotton for the binding at Lens.

The backing was purchased during Craftsy’s end of the bolt sale. It was originally intended for Kitty in the Sky with Diamonds, but then I found the purple for that back, so this one was still kicking around. The pink is a little bright, but the little coral dots match the coral fabric in some of the flowers.

I branched out again with my quilting, adding little four-petal flowers here and there. Using the long arm really is like doodling with thread!

It’s not a huge quilt – abut 52″ x 64″ – but it’s a good cuddle size. Mom already made her a beautiful one for her bed, so this one is just extra.
