Hey there folks!
I got to make some super fun quilts for quilt market. And they are made from 2 of Cotton+Steels upcoming collections. Aren't they stunning?
Please excuse the lousy pictures, I didn't have much time to photograph them before sending them out.
This orange peel quilt was made with Melody Miller's next collection Fruit Dot. I have ordered several prints from it and I hope they sell well in my easy shop. It should be shipping in January.
The blues and pinks in the prints are so lovely and that gold shimmer stripe print is so darn good.
My 14 year old daughter was home recovering from her second ear operation so she helped me fussy cut all those lady's heads. I swear I would not have made the deadline if it were not for Emma. I believe this pattern will be available on the cotton+Steel website. So, and orange peel quilt has been on my bucket list for ages. I am happy to have marked it off the list.
This is how the back of the quilt looks. Very lightly quilted.
This is the quilt I made for Kim Kight's next collection Penny Arcade. Doesn't it look like ferris wheels?
I had a little more time to make this one so I needle turned all the centers. I quilted it to kinda look like spinning ferris wheels. Squint a bit and maybe you can see it.
So...I have some leftover fabric. Would any of you like some BEFORE it hits the shops? I would if I were you, but I am kinda a fabric whore. It won't be much but it will be enough to be awesome.
I didn't have almost any of the fruit dot left over after making the orange peel quilt, but I do have enough of the Penny Arcade to share.
