The Carol Quilt has been tested and is now available for purchase in my shop.
Happy Friday! We are just wrapping up Spring Break at our house and it has been a long week. I love my children dearly but they are driving me crazy.
This quilt is actually going to go to one of my son's kindergarten teachers. She is wonderful; I love how much she appreciates my son's personality and has helped him to learn and grow.
I came up with the idea for the quilt after ordering some of Heather Ross' Tiger Lily fabric (I ordered mine here
) to use as a quilt backing. I love this print - the colors, the flowers, everything. It is so sweet.
This color scheme was fun to work with but is a little out of my comfort zone. I love pink and orange, but am not big on yellow or green, but together I really like the color combo.
The binding is one of my all time favorite prints - Chicopee simple plaid. I have gone through so much of it and am down to about a half yard, I think I might need to hunt some down. It makes such a great binding fabric.
I am actually working on a pattern to release in my Etsy shop. This is new for me and is pretty intimidating. I am hoping to have it available sometime next week and am considering whether I should have a couple people test the pattern. Have you ever released a pattern? Did you have people test it for you? Is anyone interested in testing it out?
