I like sweet novelty fabric and judging from the amount of pink prints in my stash, I apparently like pink too, a lot.
I thought Alexander Henry’s Once Upon a Time line fit the bill to converge with some large hexagons for my Hexagons by Machine workshop at Drygoods AND get my cute quilt out. It’s kind of like getting your rainbow quilt out I guess.
I like to make an initial stack of fabrics when I combine all prints and then I just have to cut and see how things work together on the design wall, as usual this results in enough precuts for another quilt. The good thing is I’m certainly not running out of fabric, so all is ok.
I’ve got quite a combo of fabric types going on in this quilt. Besides the Alexander Henry Princesses, there’s some Heather Ross double gauze, old Amy Butler flannel, the first run on Mirror Ball in pink, Lizzy House and Erin McMorris’ first line Park Slope thrown in and so on. For the backing I used Sock Monkey Textured Flannel in Pink. It’s been a hold out in my stash for ages and this quilt finally called for it.
Archetextures bound it.
The awesome bubble quilting I can take zero credit for. My friend Sandie quilted it on her long arm for me. The wool batting was a stellar choice on her part, it just makes it pop. Thanks Sandie!
I wanted to mention how much I appreciate all who comment and encourage me on this blog. I’m not the best responder, but you make my day. It’s important for me to just shut down the computer and give creative ventures and family attention. You can have emails delivered to your inbox when I post via the link in the right sidebar. Thanks to you!
Tomorrow’s my Open Studio at Drygoods if you have some spare time during the day to sew. Hope to see you there or that you have time to get your sew on!
