My friend Wendy and her husband George, the owners of Fabriculous Quilt Shop, designed this fun quilt. I knew I had to stretch out of my batik comfort zone and make it in bright modern fabrics. The pattern is called Falling in Love and you can find the pattern for sale at their shop or on their website here. I really enjoyed working with the modern fabrics and can see myself collecting more! I had shared this picture in a May blog post of the fabrics I had purchased and they worked perfect for this quilt. The fabric are a blend of Tula Pink, Kaffe Fassett, Blueberry Park, and Grunge Dots. I like to mix collections rather than just use one! The background is a white on white print.
I quilted it with straight lines and then changed the quilting in the white heart to cross hatching and CC’s. I called it ‘Hugs and Kisses” quilting as it looks like X’s and O’s.
I used white So Fine thread on top and white Bottom Line on the back. Quilters Dream Blend batting.
I’m going to wrap this quilt up and sent it to Wendy so she can hang it in her shop in Gimli, MB.
Now its time for me to get back to quilting for my clients, it’s always fun to take a little break and squeeze in one of my own projects!
