The quilt I'd like to share today is the one I made for my younger daughter. Since she and my older daughter share a room, I wanted their quilts to coordinate but have their own personality. They share many of the same fabrics. (If you peek back to last year's post you'll see my older daughter's quilt.) Here it is!
I finished piecing the top before my daughter was born but I think it took a full year before I decided what to use for a border, and then it sat for a good long while again. My mom took it to one of her longarm quilter friends who did a fabulous job with it, and then my mom sewed the binding on, because who knows when I'd have ever finally done it. :)
I always wanted to make a Lone Star quilt but the angles and bias edges scared me. When I saw the Quiltsmart system I knew I would use it for my Maddie's quilt. It was so easy and really took the worry out of it!
I used the same "Floral Bouquet" by Ladyfingers Studio for Andover Fabrics as on the other quilt and since I had (and still do have!) such a stock of it, I even backed the quilt in it. Still love it!
This is Age of Innocence by Sharlene Jorgenson for Bernatex. I have a large stock of this one too! I was very concerned about making sure I kept all of this fabric with the lines vertically, so carefully planned the cutting of the background pieces.
The rosy pink rose fabric is from the "Sentimental Journey" line by Robyn Pandolph. The cranberry and the green are my mystery fabrics. I have no idea who they are by! The green was also in my oldest's quilt, but the cranberry is the only all new addition.
Thanks for stopping by! I'm looking forward to seeing the other beautiful quilts throughout the Blogger's Quilt Festival!
