I made this one using this free pattern by Jeli Quilts as a guide. I had an odd sized bundle of Rae Hoeskta's Lotus Pond that I cut up into 4" squares. I added a few more rows and columns than the pattern directs. For the background I used Painter's Pallette from Paintbrush Studios in Aluminum. Super soft and in my stash - win, win! Have you tried these solids? They're wonderful.
For the back I found a cut of the green print from the collection on sale at Stash Fabrics. I needed a little more than a width of fabric (of course) so used some of the odd sized scraps that were leftover to make a colorful strip and pieced it in. This green will go well with grass stains for summer concert-in-the-park goers - win!
I marked a grid following the lines of the pluses. Then I free motion quilted this all-over pattern. I washed the quilt before photographing to erase all the blue lines. Quilter's Dream cotton select loft batting. Look how crinkly and cozy it looks - win!
Two labels for this quilt. My usual (with the year on the back), and because all the prints are from the same collection I used a bit of the backing selvage and included a second label. (Rae's name is on the backside.)
Rolled and tied just in time for gifting. Win!
Happy holidays to everyone!
