Happy New Year everyone! I will start 2016 by showing you Lemonade, my latest quilt design which appeared in the book “Jiffy Quick Quilts” published by Annie’s. This book showcases 10 beautiful, colorful, and fast projects which can be made in a weekend or less. I was so excited when I received my quilt back from the publisher along with a copy of the book.
For Lemonade I worked with Bella Solids white, Marbles in gray for the backing, and these gorgeous fabrics, all by Moda:
I pieced it using Aurifil 50wt and quilted with Aurifil 40wt. The freemotion quilting is simple and delicate – a garland of leaves – to complement the fabrics. The quilt measures 45″ x 63″ and each block finishes at 9″. Three fabrics, batting, and backing is all you will need!
I worked on my Masters project during the break (I get my Masters Degree in May!) so I am looking forward to doing some serious sewing soon! Nothing like these fabrics and a book with great patterns to get me inspired.
Here’s wishing you a healthy and fabric-filled New Year!
