Jolly Bar Giveaway from last week’s No Bake Jolly Bar post!
Today I wanted to show you one of my recent finishes. This quilt is made using the Cross Stitch pattern designed by my friend Amber Johnson.
I had started piecing this quilt over a year ago on a retreat. I loved making it, and had finished the quilt top within a month. But then it just sat there as I agonized over how I wanted to quilt it. Have you ever been paralyzed by indecision?? As my pile of unfinished quilts grew and grew, I decided to have someone else quilt this one for me and I’m SO glad I did! (Quilting by Kaylene Parry)
I’ve been wanting a quilt done using the baptist fan quilting design and I think it complements this quilt so nicely!
This quilt represents another first for me – I chose to use 1930’s reproduction prints. I love the color palettes of the 1930’s prints, and the sweet tiny flowers in the prints.
I now get to cross this quilt off my WIP to-do list, and more importantly I get to enjoy using it! I have a feeling it’s going to occupy a prominent spot in my living room once the dreary gray January and February comes along. That pretty yellow background is going to do a great job of cheering me up!
You can find paper versions of the Cross Stitch pattern here, and PDF versions here.
