Ruffles and Posies
Topic: Quilting

I found some awesome floral fabric on clearance that I couldn't resist and then found a complementary floral backing fabric as well, also on sale. Colors went so well with strips I already had cut left over from the origami quilt. I designed a layout based on the 'courthouse steps' block and created this lap quilt for my niece:


I dis have to purchase the black polka dot as well because I didn't have enough of either of the two black solids I had on hand to make all the strips. I'm glad of that because I think this fabric really makes the quilt.

I made myself a new challenge to incorporate a ruffle in the binding and you can see that a little better here - as well as a view of the backing fabric:


I quilted the whole thing in the ditch of the large blocks and then did free-motion shadow quilting around the blossoms on the front. Here you can see an example of that:


This completes 5 full-size quilts, one lap quilt, and two wall hangings in 13 months. Can you guess that I like this new hobby?
