I made my first official quilt 20 years ago, then made a king size quilt that I HAND quilted! I think that one did me in and I hadn't made a quilt-quilt again since. :) I continued sewing and actually started my own baby goods business,(not to mention getting married and having babies!) then an Ebay fabric business and just never made the time to quilt.
Discovering the creative blogging world changed all that. I actually "took up" quilting again when I found Old Red Barn's quilt along. I loved the great tutorial and the community I found. Well I caught the bug again, big time! I can't stop thinking in quilt. I have about 7 different quilt ideas swimming around in my head at any given time. I needed a good excuse to make one. My beautiful newborn niece, Maris was the perfect muse.
I used beautiful scraps from some of my favorite fabric lines and fused them together. They are:
Farmer's Market by Sandi Henderson
Flora & Fauna from Patty Young
Soiree from Lila Tueller
Summer Soiree from Paula Prass
Pop Garden from Heather Bailey
The pattern is Vintage Baby by Kati Cupcake (minus the ruffles).
