Quilts for Love
Hey Y'all! I'm excited to share my latest finish with you today.
Often times I make quilts for books & pattern covers, or client quilts, and even fabric designer projects, but this quilt was made straight from my heart. I have a beautiful friend that just found out she has breast cancer and I hope that she will snuggle up and know we are fighting with her as she kicks cancers ass!!
I purchased two Color Cuts by Moda Fabric from The Fat Quarter Shop for this project, one pink and one grey bundle, and I pulled the pattern from The Jolly Bar Book Vol.1 by It's Sew Emma. This book is one of my favorite "Go To" books for fun and fast patterns!
I picked the Hopscotch Quilt on page 18 for this PINK project, and I added one special heart from the Paper Hearts Quilt pattern on the next page to add a splash of love to the quilt front. I'm really excited how the color cuts fabric blended together to make such a pretty quilt!
One of my favorite parts of making a quilt is the time I spend with my hubby looking for the perfect place to take photographs! We found a tiny white gazebo not far from our house at one of our fishing spots, and it was perfect for this pink quilt of Love!
Since I am also a long arm quilter, I did some large scale swirls and flowers for the quilting and a few hearts blended in for fun! Oh and I also painted my nails hot pink for an extra touch of love for my friend too! Giving quilts to friends and family that I love has always been one of my favorite things to do, and this one is no exception. I hope you will try out one of the patterns in this book the next time you need a special quilt.
I have also made the Seas the Day Quilt for one of the sweet little boys in my life a couple years ago. I used all Kona Solids for that boy quilt, and I guess the point is, no matter the fabric, all these patterns are simply adorable!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, hope to see you back soon!
