This is Joel Dewberry's Flora collection and the colors are just beautiful. This was one of my Black Friday/Cyber Monday indulgences, and I can't wait to cut into it!
After finishing up my Snippets quilt and writing the minute details of exactly how I conquered those piles and piles of scraps, I figured I was entitled to follow it up with something a little simpler. As I have mentioned before, though my grandmother has made many quilts, she no longer enjoys quilting as much as she likes hand work. She still loves cross stitch and embroidery, and occasionally, I have the honor of turning her beautiful handiwork into a finished baby quilt for her to give to a lucky great-grandchild.
This is the third such quilt I have finished, and it is too sweet. It's a little bit hard to tell because the stitching is small, but the pictures are all cross stitched.
On the back, I did some simple wide stripes with additional yardage from the front, but I also added this awesome chevron. I love this fabric, and I have tried to use it several times in other quilts, but the colors never quite fit. It looks like it was made for this quilt though! It was too busy to use on the front, but the wide chunk in the center of the backing makes a nice impact.
Also, after much too long, I am so happy that my Filigree pattern is finally available in my Craftsy and Etsy shops! I love the illusion created by this one, and I enjoyed making it. I hope you'll check it out!
Whew! I feel like I've been moving in so many different directions for these past few days, which is really out of the norm for me! Before we jump into the party, check out some of the projects from last week that caught my eye-
Like this beauty from Elise at Lovelea Designs-
Or this pretty quilt from Chelsea at Patch the Giraffe-
and last, but certainly not least, this amazingly modern finish from Jess at Quilty Habit-

*Welcome to all of you new quilty friends! Here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop" when selecting your thumbnail photo. For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work! :)
