Kim Kight over at True Up has been giving great recaps of the new lines introduced by various fabric companies and designers. One of her Moda posts showed Joanna Figueroa’s booth and had some amazing close-up photographs of the quilts and accessories. The picture above shows “Jelly Parfait” in the Breakfast at Tiffany’s version that I was grateful to be able to piece for Joanna. It was really fun to see this picture and especially to see the stunning quilting up close!
Seeing the photo above motivated to finish up my own version (sorry about the wrinkles…I should have ironed my quilt before taking these photos). My quilt uses three Fig Tree lines: Mill House Inn, Fresh Cottons, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. (I think my quilt is about half Mill House Inn, and then about one fourth each of the other two lines). I really love how the Fig Tree fabrics all coordinate so well–Nicole has been posting about this recently too. After auditioning several fabrics I decided to use the sashing and border fabric used in the Fresh Cottons version of this quilt.
It was fun today putting each row together…there are just so many fabrics in this quilt that I love…the blues and browns in Breakfast at Tiffany’s just might be my favorites right now. And the large red floral print from Mill House Inn…glad that is in here too! And this pattern…really…it’s wonderful…you can use a single jelly roll (and you’ll have left over strips at that) to make all of the diamond blocks, or you can use 2 ½″ strips from your stash. I also loved the construction of these blocks and this quilt…it went together really well, and I’d only worked with diamonds on a small project once before.
Hope you have a wonderful day…and that you are inspired to sew soon!
