Siesta Anyone?

I've already talked a lot about constructing this quilt so there's not much left to add...

The quilting was uneventful...  Endless rows of straight-lines while binge watching Catastrophe.  Fortunately the drama stayed on-screen, not even a thread emergency.

I had some leftover triangles so I stitched them together and added them to the back.  I'm not wasting a bit of this fabric!!!

Gratuitous binding shot because the snails on the tree amuse me...

I must say this is the most snuggly quilt I've ever made - I wish I'd made it queen sized so I could put it on my bed.  The combination of cotton lawn fabrics and wool batting makes it absolutely cloud like.  Perfect for an afternoon siesta in the hammock:-)  Details on my matching Nap Time pillow are here.

Chillin' out with this week's Finish it Up Friday by Crazy Mom Quilts.

Quilt Stats:
Finished quilt is 45" x 57"
Fabrics: Sleeping Porch by Heather Ross.
Batting: Quilter's Dream Wool.
Thread: 50 wt. Aurifil in  Blossom Pink (2530).


  1. These are all beautiful fabrics and this quilt is just lovely! I really like the grass green fabrics and binding. :)

  2. gorgeous quilt! all those colorful triangles!!

  3. That is just gorgeous - it looks almost like an eiderdown it's so beautifully puffy!

  4. I am just curious about why you chose wool batting. Will it shrink if it is washed?

    1. For projects like this I like the extra loft of wool batting. I wash it in cold water and let it air dry so I've never had an issue with it shrinking.

  5. this is super!! It's perfect for a hammock :-) Isn't that fabric so dreamy?! I made 3 baby quilts with bundle of Sleeping Porch recently, and my favorite of them (feel-wise) was the one that also had a lawn backing (the other 2 received thrifted sheet backings) and bamboo batting ~ scrumptious!!
