Mash Up

I was hoping for some sunshine and May flowers to do today's photo shoot but I had to settle for a break in the rain.  I'm sick of this weather but I can pretend it's summer with this cheerful quilt.  This was something simple I whipped up with some stash and most of what was left from a bundle of Briar Rose.  I might have gotten a bit obsessed with this fabric:-)

I kept the quilting simple... just straight lines 1/4" from the seams.  Absolutely perfect for when I needed a break from the chaos of vacation week.  I could just pop in to my studio and sew a few lines before we were off and running to the next activity.

And I got the binding tacked during family movie night...  I so love a striped binding!!!

As much as I love this a friend just had a baby girl so I think this one will be a gift.  If I'm feeling really generous I may even throw in a matching pillow;-)

  1. Your obsession is understandable. Heather Ross gets it right every time. I just bought a FQ bundle of Mendocino -- love! Congrats on a beautiful finish!

  2. Perfect idea for the Tiger Lily I'm hoarding.

  3. Beautiful! This is a perfect use of such lovely fabric! I love the placement of the pieced blocks and the random solid fabric.

  4. I am obsessed with this line too! Your quilt turned out adorable!
