So, I untied several Cotton & Steel bundles I purchased with a gift certificate I won while participating in the Wallflowers QAL hosted by Bloomerie Fabrics, and started cutting. I chose the Tango pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew. Allison's patterns are easy to follow - you can count on a successful finish.
I just matched fabrics and made blocks. These were all about playing with fabric. Cotton and Steel fabrics really do all go together. You just can't miss.
...and 42 for one quilt that leans pink.
I finished all the blocks and put the quilt tops together during one long January weekend.
Then I hung them neatly in a closet with several other quilt tops that need quilting.
I chose Cotton & Steel double gauze for the backings. It quilted beautifully and is of course super soft. Bloomerie still has some available here.
I used the thin Quilter's Dream request loft for these summer quilts. You can't tell here but the pink quilt is quilted with straight lines on the diagonal. It completely distorted the quilt and this is the first time I ever blocked a quilt. (Sorry, no photos.) It's a lot better now but still not perfect. Oh well, my granddaughter doesn't care.
Here's how they look in use!
This little guy really loves an evening cruise!
Thanks for stopping by.
