Even though it seems like I've just started blogging I'm ready to take a break. I'll be spending the next 3 weeks in Florida Keys with my family. I'm just hoping the weather will cooperate, I'm counting on spending lots of time reading in a lounge chair.
Since I won't be doing any quilting I thought I'd share something I made earlier this year with Key Largo in mind. I made this using 2 Neptune jellyrolls and Crazy Mom Quilts tutorial. I quilted it on the longarm with a seashell pantograph.
I was going to do a pieced back with a zig zag across the middle but decided to use the leftovers to make a baby quilt. I hate to waste a single piece of Neptune: ) I tried using Quilter's Dream Orient in this quilt. It's a blend of bamboo, silk, and cotton and has become my new favorite batting. It doesn't get as crinkly as Quilter's Dream cotton but it has wonderful drape. I highly recommend giving it a try!
