Flower Child

There's nothing like a road trip to tack down some binding and finish up a quilt! As a bonus, it was the perfect day to do a photo shoot at my in-law's in Maine:-) 

This is another stash buster...  I pieced this top ages ago with scraps from my Nicey Jane Stripper quilt.  The white is a sweet little tone on tone floral I used in this Garden Twist quilt and the back is just a solid (Amy Butler?) blue I found lurking in my stash.

This quilt is only 37" x 44" and was specifically designed to fit a leftover piece of Warm & Natural batting I had kicking around.  I almost always use Dream Orient these days and I'd forgotten how wonderfully 100% cotton quilts.  You could easily believe this was a vintage quilt pulled out of grandma's attic!

I just LOVE a bias stripe binding!!!  The loopy flowers are FMQ based on the tutorial by the fabulous Oh, Fransson!  LOVE them too:-)

I recently came across a survey and people were evenly split on how they felt about photos with feet.  I always find them amusing so be warned, there will be toes;-)


  1. Such a clean, fresh quilt! I love the simple lines and soothing feel of this one. Nice job! (and toes don't bother me at all!) :D

  2. I love the simple design and the binding. Such a great little quilt! Thanks for linking up!
