Carol has painted a dresser and little desk a bright turquoise so I went in search of fabrics that I thought were sort of 'airy'. I started with an old layer cake of Hunky Dory and just used the turquoise and pinks. Then I went on the hunt for more.
I have hoarded the birds forever! I thought they would be a perfect addition so I threw them in. My quilt quickly grew
I love how everything just seems to work together
The pattern is an old jellyroll pattern called 'Jelly Squares' and instead of every block being the same, I used a printed 8 1/2" square as an alternate block. I like it a lot.
|my daughter rolled out of bed at 6:30 and was holding this up before she knew what hit her :)|
Now onto number two! Doesn't Janie just look like she "needs" a beach house?

I don't know how you do it Carla. Your beautiful quilts just seem to jump from fat quarters to a finished top in the blink of an eye. As always you have a brilliant eye for colour. I love it. Philippa xx
The bird fabric matches perfectly and adds something special for the girls to look for in the quilt. It is the perfect touch for this quilt! Great job!!!

This turned out great Carla! I have been "hoarding" the same bird fabric too, waiting for the right project. This just proves that our fabric stash will eventually come through with a winner.
Looking forward to seeing #2.
