Finished! Heather's Princess and the Pea quilt

>> Thursday, June 17, 2010

It's the quilt that started a love affair ..... Heather's love affair with the beautiful combination of aqua and tangerine fabrics together.  She told me she wanted to make a feminine quilt using more masculine colorways ... because she's the only girl in a family of 4.  (Hmmm ... that sounds familiar!)

She sent out a selection of Heather Ross's Far, Far Away line to each of the members in the Sew New to Me Virtual Quilting Bee. (Which - if you remember - was also the group that created Gretchen's green and gray baby quilt).  Heather asked for everyone to create for her a wonky/improv block that really showed each member's unique personality.

Everyone did an amazing job and she got back the best variety of blocks that were all truly unique!  She used Kona Ash for the sashing and took the risk of using a coal colored IKEA sheet for the backing.  The sheet had a sateen finish to it that made for a snuggly and luxurious finished quilt!  Heather said that the risk paid off and that the sheet quilted up nicely.

She then used simple & modern straight line quilting to keep the focus of the quilt on the gorgeous blocks.  It looks AMAZING and is a quilt that she's going to be loving for a long time!
