I finally get to share photos of this version of The Violet Quilt
today! When we lived in Southern California I really took the weather for granted - I could take quilt photos pretty much any time. Now that we are in Oregon things are a little trickier - especially in the winter - and sometimes there are weeks where it is too rainy, windy, or dark to take photos.
We finally had a sunny day last week and my husband and I were quite the spectacle walking over to a field near our house - we were both piled with quilts. I'm sure our neighbors thought we were nuts!
Since the Violet QAL
is currently going on, I have been anxious to share finished photos of the version I made a few weeks ago using Daydream by Patty Basemi
. The collection is so sweet - perfect for a little girl.
I mixed in a Pure Elements Solid in Peach Sorbet - I had it on hand and both collections are from Art Gallery Fabrics so the worked well together (usually collections from one manufacturer are more likely to match their solids).
It seems like the more quilts I make, the pickier I get about the backing fabric. There was absolutely nothing suitable in my stash, so I picked up some yardage of my favorite print from the collection for the backing. I love it!
It's not too late to join in with the Violet QAL
- we are just picking our fabric this week!
