Art Gallery Fabrics Lottery

I hit the fabric jackpot!!  A few weeks ago I got the best Instagram notification ever!  I won a half yard bundle of 5 different Art Gallery Fabrics.  The collections were Lavish, Essentials II, Chalk and Paint, Forest Floor and Pastel Thrift.  After seeing my friend Christina Lane’s (@sometimescraftr) Donut quilt she made for her sister’s wedding, I thought it  would make a perfect weekend project, and I had to use new fabric!  I chose mostly fabrics from Lavish by Katarina Roccella and Essentials II by Pat Bravo.

I really love the soft feminine sweetness of this quilt, which is typically not my style but lately I feel myself migrating from a more modern, improvisational quilter to a more traditional, vintage, heirloom style.

As far as the quilting, my favorite part!  I used the Modern Flowers design by Natalia Majors for the borders!  The rest I did all free motion and ruler work.  As much as I love the perfection of my Statler along with the challenge of choosing and setting up the designs.  I truly love to do hand guided work.  My hope is that more of my business develops into custom hand guided quilting.
