Well, in amongst the Quilt orders I have been doing, I have created a stunning Single bed Quilt. My brief was to create a quilt and pillowcase for a girls bedroom. YAY!! it is finished !!
This Adorable Quilt named “FLORAL DELIGHTS” has been made from beautiful fabrics from stunning designers Michael Miller, Riley Blake, Robert Kaufmann and from my beloved Tilda stash.
The Basic Design is from the a Riley Blake Quilt top pattern “Squared Up”. I have embellished the Pattern with 4 Hexagon flowers which have been hand-pieced and hand sewn together and then machine appliqued to the quilt top.
Here I have used Michael Miller Flight Fancy as it is bright, fun and the spots have all the colours that in the top. To incorporate the patchwork I created a 4″ column of all the fabric I used in the quilt top. To create a garden effect I used a gorgeous pink owl fabric (sorry I can’t remember the name 😦 ). The advantage of creating this column offset from the middle is I didn’t need to match up the pattern.
This quilt now has two sides !! Even better.
The pillowcase has been made once again from the Michael Miller fabric “Flight Fancy” with White Kona solid from Robert Kaufman fabrics. To bring the patch work in once again to the pillowcase I created Bias binding from the left over scraps of the quilt top border – simply stunning.
