For those of you who commented on the pink fabric from the last post, here it is. This quilt is called "I Left My Heart in Paris". The fabric is the new line from French General called Pom Pom de Paris. It will be in stores in March. I fell in love with this line as soon as I saw it. It is so soft and romantic. I am a sucker for soft faded reds and these are fab.
I have never designed anything for Valentines Day and thought this would be the perfect line. I didn't want it to be too "sweet" and wanted it to be something you could use anytime. I think it turned out nice. This quilt will reside in my bedroom when it is not traveling. It is a great match to the shabby chic style in there.
The pattern uses 1 layer cake and a fat quarter of green. The covers should be ready early in the week and then available for purchase in my online store.
I machine quilted in the ditch to secure the quilt, used pearl cotton and the big stitch method on the applique pieces. Then I stitched a diagonal line across each block using traditional handquilting. What do you think?
Happy Quilting, Dawn
