Season of Love quilt

Well, school has started around here and we're slowly getting used to a new routine.  I'll admit it's been a rough transition this time from summer schedule to school schedule - both boys have been tardy already several times.  Sheesh!  

With the boys back in school, I do have more time for sewing and this quilt is one of my recent finishes.

Quilt made with Season of Love fabric from Blend Fabrics

The fabrics in this quilt are from the Season of Love line designed by Ana Davis for Blend Fabrics.  The prints are Indian-inspired, full of elephants, peacocks, and lovely details.

You can see more of the prints here on the Blend website.  

The quilt finishes at 49" x 62" and it was a fun one.  A pattern for this will be coming soon.  The whole pattern writing process is sure sped up when school is in session ;)

On the back I used a cozy mint colored minky.  I have to tell you that the day after I finished this, I found it on my teenage boy's bed.   He did NOT care that it was very, very pink - the only thing that mattered was that it had a minky backing.  I can bribe my boys with oreos and minky backed quilts!

For the quilting I used a new-to-me pantograph called Swift.  Pretty one, isn't it?  You can find it here at Urban Elementz (one of my favorite places to buy pantos!)  

American Patchwork & Quilting podcast hosted by Pat Sloan

Oh - and if you missed my episode of the American Patchwork & Quilting podcast last week you can listen to it here at this link.  Each Monday Pat has on a new group of guests!  You can find the list of all past guests here.  It's fun to load up a podcast or two and listen in while I sew.  I've learned so much and gotten to know some talented quilters that way.

Have a great Monday, and thanks for stopping by!


  1. My teenage boy will also use anything with minky on the back. This is beautiful.

  2. This is so pretty, I love the paisley designs in the fabric. x

  3. Love the quilting design! Beautiful quilt! The soft mint backing is the perfect touch. Loved how your son whisked it away to his room :)!
