Our babysitter of the last two years is having a baby boy next month and I wanted to make something special for her. I used Anna Maria Horner’s Little Folks Voile combined with Peppered Cotton by Pepper Cory in a Quilt As You Go hexagon pattern I learned about in the book Quiltopedia by Laura Jane Taylor.
I call it “Flower Pots” because the center earth tone looks like soil for Anna Maria’s voile flowers. I think the neutral grounds (forgive the pun) the bright fabrics well. So fun to try a new quilting technique.
And to all my crafty friends, Umbrella Prints is now displaying their 2014 Trimming Competition Entries. Check out my two bag entries as well as all the other lovely handmades there. Vote for your faves by commenting on their Pinterest snapshots.
Now I’m off to buy some flowers for my own garden.
