Another Ruffly Quilt

I showed you my first attempt at stippling and free motion quilting last week, and now get to show you the finished product! I needed to make a new sample for our Gathers & Giggles Quilt Pattern, and this is what I came up with. I don’t know when I’ll get over my purple infatuation (ex. here and here), but I don’t think it’ll be anytime soon.
For the front of the quilt I used both Kate Spain’s Central Park and Anthology’s High Society lines. The backing is a fabric from Central Park. Sometimes I feel guilty for mixing different designers, but they went together so well that I couldn’t resist, and now I’m so happy with how it turned out!
After I finish a quilt it seems like I spend the next two weeks folding it and refolding it, and refolding it again, even if it just goes right back to sitting on my table. I’m not sure why it’s so fun to fold new quilts, but it is! Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels that way. Or at least tell me you have a weirder obsession to make me feel better about myself, that would work, too :).

  1. So beautiful, I was excited to see the finished product and I was not dissapointed! I love it! Thats it, I cannot resist any longer, I am buying the quilt pattern RIGHT NOW. It would be so perfect for my baby girl’s room. So girly! I was going to do an appliqued quilt for her and had started it and everything, but then once I met her I just wasn’t feeling it anymore. The quilt I was doing was funky, which suited my first daughter, but my second seems to be more suited to softer stuff. This would be perfect!

  8. So beautiful! I love to sew but have not attempted quilting yet (except for doll quilts when i was young that I don’t feel really count). I would definitely be folding and unfolding that quilt again and again as well!
