I love Anna Maria Horner's Loominous collection and bought a fat quarter bundle a while back. It made the move with us from San Diego to Salem and has been sitting on the shelf. A few weeks ago I finally decided what I wanted to do with it and started cutting.
Since I was working with a fat quarter bundle, there were some limitations here, but I had fun putting the quilt together.
The woven fabric was not much different than working with regular quilting cotton - it is just softer. I had been planning to use another AMH print for the backing, but it didn't seem to do the softness of the woven fabric justice so I splurged on yardage of my favorite print from the collection for the backing.
If you have been reading my blog lately, you may have seen a sneak peak at the binding last week. It is another Loominous print.
I tried something new for the batting. It is Quilter's Dream Cotton Deluxe. It is not their thickest cotton batting, but it is a little heftier than my normal Quilter's Dream Cotton Select or Request. It was not difficult to work with and wasn't a huge difference, but it does give the quilt a nice warmth and gives the quilting a little more definition.
I have re-stocked my Etsy shop with a few quilts, including this one, though I may take it out. I'm not sure I can part with this one.
