Sometimes simple is nice.
While cleaning and sorting through my fabric I came across some layer cakes I bought atleast a year ago. I just liked the fabric. (I know, who does that!?!?) So I decided to get them sewn up. Today I'll highlight this adorable Riley Blake Dress-Up Days Layer Cake:
|This measures 47"x47".|
I'm glad I didn't make this quilt harder than it needed to be. I just sewed the blocks together, quilted it together with this soft purple flannel on the back and added some cute orange polka-dot binding. (The binding isn't sewn down. I like to hand sew my binding and so am saving this stitching for Fall when my productivity in the studio drops and the weather is cooler.) But don't ya just love how flannel seems to "puff" and really accentuate the quilting here?
This was my first time using this Lazy Dazy Pantograph and I really like it. Also, for the first time, I used a different colored thread on the front and back. I used a variegated lavender thread on the front and a dark purple thread on the back...it all came out great! (Whew!)
Makes me smile to think of the Sweet Dreams that are in store for a special one-year
old little girl I have in mind for this quilty hug.
